US says drone shot down by Russian air defenses near Libyan capital

Saturday, December 7, 2019, 8:13 PM

Such a shootdown would underscore Moscow's increasingly muscular role in the energy-rich nation, where Russian-mercenaries are reportedly intervening on behalf of east Libya-based commander Khalifa-Haftar in Libya's civil-war.
