US says Russia sent jets to Libya ’mercenaries’

The US military said Tuesday that Russia has deployed fighter aircraft to Libya to support Russian mercenaries fighting for eastern forces in their offensive on Tripoli. The aircraft departed from an airbase in Russia via Syria, where they ’were repainted to camouflage their Russian origin,’ before arriving in Libya, a statement from US Africa Command said. Russia has denied the statement.
