DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (AFP) - An Iranian cargo plane en route to Syria was forced to land in Turkey's southeastern Diyarbakir airport for an inspection, security forces said Sunday. The plane, a civilian Ilyushin, landed on Saturday night on the orders of the Turkish authorities. Military fighter planes were on standby in case the plane refused to comply. An inspection of the plane is on-going to check whether the aircraft has any illicit or military material on board, security sources added. Turkish authorities forced another Syrian-bound Iranian plane to land in Diyarbakir on Wednesday last week. After a search lasting several hours, the plane was found to be carrying 150 tons of food but "no material contrary to international standards", security sources said. The plane was then allowed to continue on to its destination. Anti-nuclear, biological and chemical material unit of civilian defence teams also took part in the inspection of the plane.
