ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish state-run TV station TRT reports that Turkey has forced a Syrian passenger plane to land at Ankara airport.

TRT says the Airbus A320 coming from Moscow was intercepted by F16 jets Wednesday as it entered Turkish airspace and escorted to the capital's Esenboga Airport.

The station reported that the plane was suspected of carrying heavy weapons to Damascus.

A Turkish Foreign Ministry official confirmed that a Syrian plane was forced to land at Ankara airport, and that authorities were "inspecting the plane" but would not provide further information.
