WASHINGTON - The US military dismissed Islamic State claims on Thursday it had shot down an Iraqi aircraft, saying all US-led coalition aircraft as well Iraqi aircraft had been accounted for.

Reuters had previously reported the claim, made on one of the Islamic State's Twitter accounts, saying a Russian-made Su-25 was seen crashing in flames after being shot down north of Ramadi.

Major Curtis Kellogg, a spokesman at the US military's Central Command, said the claim was inaccurate.
