Turkey has again summoned the Russian ambassador after a second violation of its airspace by a Russian warplane operating in Syria in two days.

It did the same after the first violation on Saturday, after which two Turkish F-16 jets were scrambled.

Turkey said the second violation occurred on Sunday.

Nato has urged Russia to end air strikes "on the Syrian opposition and civilians".

Russia says it is targeting Islamic State and other Islamists.
