      Syria, Turkey Trade Words Over Plane Incident

      The war of words between Syria and Turkey escalated on Thursday, when Ankara said it had found military supplies on a passenger plane it intercepted en route between Moscow and Damascus.

      AFP reported that the Syrian foreign ministry accused Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of lying after he said the jet had been carrying "equipment and ammunition shipped to the Syrian defense ministry" from a Russian military supplier.
