US ac­cuses Rus­sia over jet ma­noeu­vre

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Wash­ing­ton: A Rus­sian jet fighter that in­ter­cepted a US Air Force re­con­nais­sance plane on Fri­day did so in an “un­safe and un­pro­fes­sional man­ner” over the Baltic Sea, the Pen­tagon has said.

It says the fighter per­formed a bar­rel roll plane over the Amer­i­can plane. It is the sec­ond in­ci­dent in the Baltic this month in which the US has ac­cused Rus­sian planes of fly­ing ag­gres­sively. Two Rus­sian planes flew close to a US guided mis­sile de­stroyer al­most a dozen times in the Baltic on April 13. BBC
