NEW YORK, Oct 15 (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council will likely meet on Wednesday to discuss latest developments in Syria, diplomats said, adding that a closed-door discussion had been requested by the body's five European members - Britain, France, Germany, Belgium and Poland.

It will be the second council meeting since Turkey began a military incursion across its southern border with Syria, days after U.S. troops pulled back from the area. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols Editing by Susan Heavey and John Stonestreet)
