Turkey says will inform U.N., NATO on Syrian helicopter downing

PARIS (Reuters) - Turkey will provide the U.N. Security Council and fellow members of the NATO military alliance with details of the circumstances of its shooting down on Monday of a Syrian helicopter, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said.

Turkish warplanes shot down the Syrian Mi-17 helicopter after it violated Turkish airspace following repeated warnings, Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said earlier.
