Syria crisis: Rebels 'shoot down' warplane

Syrian rebels have produced footage of a man they claim is the captured pilot of a fighter jet that went down in the east of the country.

The rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed it shot a military aircraft down near the Iraqi border.

But state media said the plane crashed because of "technical problems".
