WASHINGTON - A US Predator drone that was lost over Syria on Tuesday was likely shot down, two US officials told Reuters on Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss a matter they said was still under investigation.

The US military has not commented on the possible cause of the incident.

A Syrian army source told Reuters the plane was brought down by Syrian air defenses over Latakia province - part of the western region of Syria where Damascus has been consolidating state control.
