One of the world's most volatile regions was roiled further Tuesday when a Russian warplane went down near the Turkish-Syria border. Turkey said it "responded" to a plane after the aircraft repeatedly violated its airspace and ignored several warnings.
NATO's governing body, the North Atlantic Council, will hold an emergency meeting in Brussels at 5 p.m. (11 a.m. ET) on Tuesday, after a Russian warplane violating Turkish airspace was shot down, a NATO official told Turkey's semiofficial Anadolu Agency. The council is made up of the NATO ambassadors of the 28 countries that are members of the alliance, and is NATO's highest decision-making body.
