Russia says war plane crashes in Syria, killing two pilots - agencies

MOSCOW, May 3 (Reuters) - The Russian military said a Sukhoi-30 multi-role fighter jet had crashed in Syria on Thursday, killing both of its pilots, Russian news agencies reported.

The agencies, citing a defence ministry statement, said the jet had crashed after taking off and was not shot down.

The RIA news agency said the crash may have been caused by a bird strike. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova Writing by Maria Tsvetkova Editing by Andrew Osborn)
