Syrian rebels have produced footage of a man they claim is the captured pilot of a fighter jet that went down in the east of the country.

The rebel Free Syrian Army say they shot a military aircraft down near the Iraqi border.

But state media say the plane crashed due to "technical problems" and a search is under way to find the pilot.

Syria is facing suspension from the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation because of its handling of the crisis.
