Russian military plane vanishes from radar over Syria

A Russian military aircraft with 14 people on board has disappeared from radar after flying over Syria, Russia's defence ministry says.

"Connection has been lost with the crew of a Russian Il-20 plane over the Mediterranean Sea," the ministry said.

Contact was lost at about 23:00 local time (20:00 GMT) on Monday, it added.

The incident on Monday reportedly occurred about 35km (22 miles) from the Syrian coast as the Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft was returning to Russia's Hmeimim airbase near the north-western city of Latakia.

How can Russia accuse Israel? It's Syria which downed the Russian plane. Lack of communication.
