The bodies of the crew members of a Turkish jet shot down by Syria last month have been found.

Turkey's TRT television said the two airmen were found on the Eastern Mediterranean seabed by a US deep-sea exploration vessel.

The F-4 Phantom jet was shot down on 22 June after Syrian authorities claimed it had violated their airspace, a claim disputed by Turkey.

The military did not say precisely where the bodies were found and said the wreckage of the plane itself had not yet been spotted.
