NATO to meet on Syria-Turkey plane downing
A spokeswoman says NATO's governing body will meet Tuesday to discuss the Syrian downing of a Turkish plane.
Turkish officials say the jet was on a training flight Friday when it strayed into Syrian airspace, but was in international airspace when it was shot down.
The consultations will focus on article 4 of NATO's founding Washington Treaty. Under the article, an ally can request consultations "whenever, in the opinion of any of them, their territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened."
