Russian warplane violates Turkish airspace for a second time

A Russian warplane violated Turkey's airspace for a second time on Sunday, said the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

The ministry summoned the Russian ambassador late on Monday to protest against the violation.

Turkish jets were scrambled after a Russian warplane violated Turkey's air space on Saturday but Russia blamed a "navigational error".

The Cold War adversaries believe in different solutions to end Syria's civil war.

Turkey's belief is that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has to go for the conflict to end whereas Russia backs the Syrian leader. Turkey, a Nato member, has called the Russian strikes a "grave mistake".

Jeremy Corbyn has urged activists to engage in "civilised debate" and not "personal abuse" after ugly scenes at demonstrations outside the Conservative Party conference.

The demonstration, involving about 60,000 people, was largely peaceful but some activists spat at journalists entering the Manchester Central venue and police made four arrests.

The crowd listening to Jeremy Corbyn speak at the rally

If we go into politics, we go into our union work, we go into our lives on the basis that what we say we hope is of value, what the other person says we hope is of value, and we engage in an intelligent, civilised debate, not responding to personal abuse and not making personal abuse."

– Jeremy Corbyn
