Rebel fighters in Syria have shot down a Russian plane and claimed to have taken its pilot captive.

Dramatic video shows the Sukhoi 25 plummeting out of the sky after it was hit in the north-western province of Idlib.

Another then shows rebels celebrating as the wreckage burns on the ground, sending a huge plume of black smoke into the sky.

The pilot, who managed to eject and parachute to the ground unharmed, is now being held prisoner by the rebels.
