WASHINGTON, April 25- The United States on Tuesday expressed "deep concern" over air strikes by Turkish planes in Syria and Iraq and said they were not authorized by the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State.

The Turkish planes bombed Kurdish fighters in Iraq's Sinjar region and northeast Syria, killing at least 20 in a campaign against groups linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party.
