Witnesses:  Small Plane Crashes Near Syria's Capital, Killing 3

Reports from Syria say a small aircraft apparently used by the military has crashed near Damascus, killing three people on board.

Witnesses said the plane appeared to be on a training flight Sunday when it came down.

There was no immediate confirmation of the incident from Syrian officials.

The plane crash happened at a time of heightened tension between Syria and Israel, which carried out an air strike deep inside Syrian territory on September 6. Neither country has given much information about the target of the Israeli raid.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
