BEIRUT (Reuters) - A warplane crashed in Syria's Raqqa province in territory controlled by Islamic State militants, a monitoring group said on Wednesday.

The cause of the crash and the identity of the aircraft were unclear. Events in Syria are difficult to confirm because of restricted media access to conflict zones.
