US has 'concerns' over Russian missile system: US official

This handout image taken by EADS' Astrium Press on September 20, 2015 by Pleiades Satellite shows a view of Russian fighter jets and helicopters at a military base in the government-controlled coastal Syrian city of LatakiaRussia’s announcement it is deploying its most hi-tech air defense system to its base in Syria is raising “significant concerns” for the US military, a US official said Wednesday. Russia says it is sending S-400 anti-aircraft missiles to Latakia in northwestern Syria, in a move that comes after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet in the increasingly crowded air space along the border on Tuesday. The S-400 missiles have a range of about 400 kilometers (250 miles), posing a potential threat to US-led coalition planes, and adding yet another dangerous element to an already volatile mix of competing military interests in Syria.
