Two Turkish pilots, who shot down a Russian Su-24, near the Syrian border, were taken into custody for a coup attempt.
This was reported by AFP, linking to a high Turkish official.
"Two Turkish pilots, who shot down a Russian Su-24, near the Syrian border, were taken into custody," - the source says, explaining that they had been detained after the coup attempt.
Earlier, the mayor of Ankara, İbrahim Melih Gokcek said that one of the pilots who shot down Su-24, also participated in the coup in Turkey.
According to him, this man is a member of the organization located in US, headed by the preacher Fethullah Gulen, who is currently on Turkey's most-wanted-terrorist list and is accused of leading what the current Turkish officials call the Gulenist Terror Organisation.
As it was reported earlier, a Russian Su-24 was shot down by Turkish armed forces in November 2015 after violating Turkish airspace.
