A private Turkish television network has broadcast footage apparently showing a warplane going down in flames in Syria near the Turkish border.

A Turkish military official was cited by Reuters as saying that the plane was warned before being shot down.

Private Turkish broadcaster Haberturk TV broadcast the footage on Tuesday, saying the incident happened on the same day.

Other footage by Anadolou apparently showed two pilots parachuting away from the plane.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has ordered the foreign ministry to consult with NATO, the United Nations and related countries on the latest developments on the Syrian border, his office said in a statement on Tuesday.
