Islamic State  militants have shot down a US-led coalition warplane over northern Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the aircraft, believed to be from an Arab state, went down near Raqqa.

The UK-based group said the fate of the pilot was unknown, but IS supporters published photos they said showed a Jordanian airman surrounded by gunmen.

If confirmed, this would be the first coalition warplane shot down since air strikes on IS began in September.
