Putin: 'Jet shot down to protect IS oil routes'

Vladimir Putin has said he believes a Russian warplane was shot down near the Syrian border in order to protect Turkey's oil trade with the Islamic State (IS) group.

The Russian resident made the comments during international talks on climate change in Paris.

One pilot was killed and the other rescued following the crash on 24 November.

Turkey has denied any ties to IS and says the jet entered its air space - an accusation Russia denies.
