Russian President Vladimir Putin has bitterly condemned the downing of a Russian jet on the Turkey-Syria border. He described it as a "stab in the back" committed by "accomplices of terrorists." Turkey says its jets shot at the plane after warning that it was violating Turkish airspace. But Moscow says it never strayed from Syrian airspace. One of the two crew members who ejected from the downed plane was killed by fire from the ground, the Russian military said. The fate of the other is unclear. A Russian soldier was killed when the helicopter he was on came under fire during a search and rescue mission, a spokesman added. Mr Putin warned there would be "serious consequences" for Moscow's relations with Turkey.
