Turkish military releases audio of 'warnings' given to Russian warplane

Turkey has released an audio recording of what it claims are warnings given to a Russian warplane before it was shot down near the Syrian border.

According to the Turkish military, the Russian SU-24 attack aircraft was hailed 10 times before it was engaged and brought down on the Syria/Turkey border.

"Change your heading south," a voice says in English through heavy static in the clip.

The surviving Russian pilot, Captain Konstantin Murakhtin, insists that he did not receive a warning beforehand.

Captain Murakhtin was rescued and is currently at a Russian air base in Syria but his co-pilot was reportedly killed by militants on the ground.
