MOSCOW (Reuters) - A French military jet was involved in a dangerous incident with an aircraft carrying the speaker of the lower house of the Russian parliament, Russia's foreign ministry said on Monday.

The ministry said it had summoned the French ambassador in Moscow to protest over the incident. It said the French jet came dangerously close to the aircraft carrying speaker Sergei Naryshkin as it flew to Switzerland.
