NATO member Bulgaria said Tuesday it refused permission to an unspecified number of Russian aircraft to cross its airspace late last week, amid growing US fears that Moscow is boosting its military support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"The planes were said to carry humanitarian aid but we had information, that we had any reason to trust, that the declared cargo was not the real one," foreign ministry spokeswoman Betina Zhoteva told AFP.
