Russian pilot's body now in Turkey's hands, PM says

The body of a pilot killed when Turkey shot down a Russian jet last week is now in Turkey's hands, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said.

The body will be handed over to Russia at Moscow's request, he said.

He added that the issue of different coalitions operating in Syria with differing objectives meant similar incidents could happen in the future without improved information sharing and coordination.

However, there has been no official word on what motivated the man who mounted the attack in which three people were killed.

The media reports cited unidentified law enforcement sources.
