Britain said it appeared that a Royal Air Force plane that went missing in the Gulf on Sunday had been shot down by a US Patriot missile.

"It appears the RAF aircraft was engaged by a Patriot missile near the Kuwaiti border. The crew are missing. I can't confirm the type of aircraft or the number of crew," said a spokesman for Britain's Defence Ministry.
