Beirut: One Russian pilot of a plane downed by Turkey over northern Syria on Tuesday is dead and a second is missing, rebel and opposition activist sources said.

They said the first pilot was killed by opposition forces who shot at him as he landed after ejecting from the plane.

Several videos circulating online and shared on opposition social media sites purported to show the dead pilot surrounded by rebels from different factions.
