A Syrian-bound plane intercepted by Turkey was carrying Russian-made defence equipment destined for Syria’s defence ministry, Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.

“Passenger aircraft can’t carry ammunition and defence equipment,” Mr Erdogan said, adding, “unfortunately there was such equipment on board”.

Turkish jets forced the plane, coming from Moscow, to land in Ankara.

Syria and Russia have denied the plane was carrying illegal cargo.

They have accused Turkey of putting lives in danger.
