The Turkish military says it warned a Syrian warplane four times as it was approaching Turkey's air space before shooting it down earlier today. The Turkish General Staff said in a statement that the second Syrian plane heeded the warnings and turned back. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had earlier said Ankara would react forcefully to what he called any further incursions. James Reynolds reports. “Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a rally in Istanbul that Turkish F-16s hit a Syrian warplane after it violated Turkish airspace. If you violate our airspace, our slap after this will be hard, Mr. Erdogan told his supporters. One report from Damascus says that Syria condemns Turkish action as a flagrant act of aggression. The governments of Turkey and Syria have been on opposite sides of Syria's war since October 2011. Over the last year and a half, there have been a number of incidents along their 900km long border.”

Exit polls in France showed the Socialists of President Francios Hollande are behind the centre-right opposition UMP in the first round of municipal elections. The anti-immigration National Front makes significant gains as Hugh Schofield reports from Paris. “It is in rather well that we need keeping things in proportion. It's certainly may begins, and in a number towns, I’m secured places like Frejus, Perpignan, Avignon, it's made the spectacular success of actually coming out first in this first round of voting. The reason for that was no secret that there is a growing aspiration in France with the two main parties, the UMP and the ruling Socialist. We do need to keep some sense of proportion knowing all this. The chances of winning many towns, control many towns are very, very small. This is a two-round election that we get.”

The NATO Supreme Military Commander has warned that the Russian military presence along the eastern Ukrainian border poses a threat to both sides of the country. Speaking in Brussels, General Philip Breedlove said the Russian buildup was big enough to threaten not just eastern Ukrainian but also a Moldova's breakaway region of Transnistria. “The force that is at Ukrainian border now to the east is very, very sizable and very, very ready. We need to think about the positioning of our forces such that we can defend against it if required, especially in the Baltics.” In a BBC's interview, Ukraine's acting Deputy Defence Minister said that Ukraine hoped the West support would extend to joint military exercises and safeguarding Ukraine’s nuclear power stations. He said such international efforts would help preclude a fully-fledged war with Russia.

Afghan officials say a recent attack on a Kabul luxury hotel that left nine civilians dead was planned by foreign intelligence services. Correspondents say the statement is seen as a veiled reference to Pakistan's spy agency, the ISI. Four teenage gunmen fired indiscriminately on dinners at the hotel's restaurant.
