Russian protesters demonstrate outside the Turkish embassy in Moscow, on November 25, 2015Russia on Wednesday accused Turkey of a "planned provocation" over the downing of a warplane on the Syrian border as a rescued pilot said no prior warning had been given. The Turkish army responded by releasing audio recordings apparently warning the Russian jet it was approaching Turkish airspace and should change course, as tensions remained high following Tuesday's incident despite appeals for calm. Moscow said Russian and Syrian special forces had rescued one of the two Russian pilots who ejected from the bomber as it plunged to the earth in a fireball, but confirmed the second airman and a soldier sent to rescue him died.

Demonstrators confront police during a protest following the release of a video showing Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke shooting and killing Laquan McDonald, on November 24, 2015 in Chicago, IllinoisA white Chicago policeman caught on tape shooting dead a black teenager had at least 20 complaints filed against him but was never disciplined, a database shows, in the latest such incident to inflame racial sentiment in the US. The graphic video released shortly after officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder Tuesday has also reignited impassioned debate about the use of force by law enforcement in the United States, with Chicago left dangerously on edge. Protesters there have likened the Laquan McDonald killing to that of Michael Brown, the black teenager shot dead by a white policeman in Ferguson, Missouri last year, triggering 15 months of demonstrations in major US cities over perceived police brutality against black men.
