The US-led coalition in Syria has shot down a Syrian military jet in Raqqa province.

The Syrian army said its warplane was on a mission against the Islamic State group when it came under fire on Sunday.

It said the incident would have "dangerous repercussions" on efforts to fight terrorism.

The US said it acted in self-defence after the Syrian regime dropped bombs near US-backed fighters.
