Syria says military plane crashes in south, cause being investigated

AMMAN (Reuters) - The Syrian army said on Thursday that a military plane had crashed in southern Syria and the cause was being investigated, state television reported.

Rebels said earlier that they had shot down a Russian-made MIG jet. They released video of what appeared to be a burnt-out plane near the site of heavy fighting around a military airport they have been trying to gain control of since Wednesday.
