U.S. officials said Wednesday that a Predator drone lost over Syria a day earlier was likely shot down, while the Syrian military said it had brought down the craft over suspicions that it was spying.The news came as Syrian government troops seized territory near the city of Aleppo from rebel groups, while the U.S. sought to reassure its ally Turkey that it continued to support a settlement to the four-year conflict that excludes Syrian President Bashar Assad from the country's political future. Syrian state media reported late Tuesday that air defenses had targeted a U.S. surveillance aircraft over Latakia province, a coastal stronghold of President Bashar Assad.The United States still wants a negotiated political settlement in Syria that excludes Assad, and its position on the Syrian leader has not changed, top U.S. envoy John Allen told Turkish officials late Tuesday.
