U.S. and Russian aircraft come within visual range over Syria


Two Russian and two U.S. aircraft came within visual range of each other -- separated by just 10 to 20 miles -- over Syria Saturday, according to the anti-ISIS coalition.

Both sets of aircraft moved away and there was no incident, said Col. Steve Warren, spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition, Tuesday. "Everyone went about their business."

Yet Warren called Russian airstrikes in Syria "reckless and indiscriminate" as well as "irresponsible."

Russian aircraft are also continuing to shadow U.S. drones.
