ANKARA - Turkey said on Sunday Syria shot down its military aircraft in international waters, without warning and declared it would formally consult with NATO allies on a reaction.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told state broadcaster TRT the plane had been clearly marked as Turkish and said he did not agree with Syria's earlier statement it had not known the plane belonged to Turkey.
