Turkey summons U.N. Security Council members' envoys over Russian jet: official

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's foreign ministry on Tuesday summoned representatives from the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council to brief them on the downing of a Russian fighter jet, a Turkish official said. Envoys from the U.S., Russia, China, France and Britain were called in after the warplane came down along Turkey's Syria border, sparking a furious response from Moscow. The Turkish military said the plane was repeatedly warned after violating Turkish airspace, something Russia denies. (Reporting by Tulay Karadeniz, writing by Jonny Hogg; Editing by Nick Tattersall)
