ANKARA, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Turkish authorities searched an Armenian plane after forcing it to land in the eastern city of Erzurum on Monday, sources from Turkey's state airports authority said, without giving further details.

Turkey forced down a Syrian airliner en route from Moscow last Wednesday and said it was carrying Russian munitions destined for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's military, infuriating Moscow and Damascus.
