The IS said on Wednesday they had shot down a warplane in the northeastern Syria province of Raqqa and taken the pilot captive. The Britain-based group calling itself Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it had confirmed reports the plane was brought down near Raqqa city, a major stronghold for IS militants. Events in Syria are difficult to verify because of restricted media access to conflict zones.
