Two US military jets over Baltic Sea were intercepted, says Russia

MOSCOW - Russia said Tuesday it had scrambled a Su-27 fighter jet to "prevent violations of the state border" by two US Air Force strategic bombers flying over the Baltic Sea.

"After removing the foreign military aircraft from the Russian state border, the Russian fighter went back to its air base," the Russian defense ministry said. -- Agence France-Presse
