Turkey says Syria opened fire on 2nd plane

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's deputy prime minister says Syrian forces have opened fire on a second Turkish plane that was searching for the wreckage of a jet earlier shot down by Syria.

Bulent Arinc told a televised news conference Monday that Syrian forces opened fire on a CASA search and rescue plane following the downing of a RF-4E reconnaissance jet in international airspace on Friday. Arinc did not say whether the search and rescue plane was hit.

He says the Syrian side ceased fire after a warning from the Turkish military.
