ISTANBUL - Turkish authorities have detained a man suspected of killing a Russian pilot after his plane was shot down by a Turkish jet near the Syrian-Turkish border last November, Turkey's Hurriyet newspaper reported.

The shooting down of the Russian jet triggered a tense standoff between Russia and NATO member Turkey, with Moscow imposing a raft of economic sanctions on Ankara in retaliation.

Hurriyet said the man was arrested in a restaurant in the Aegean coastal city of Izmir in a group of 14 people, all of whom were detained. It did not say why they were arrested.
