Lithuania: Fighter jet alert halts Spanish PM news conference | News | DW | 08.07.2021

Pilots scrambled a Eurofighter jet at Siauliai air force base in LithuaniaThursday in response to an unidentified Russian plane. The alert interrupted a joint news conference the president, Gitanas Nauseda, was holding with Spanish President Pedro Sanchez. They were three minutes into the press conference in front of the plane’s fuselage and in the middle of a “joint declaration” when a chaotic scene unfolded behind them during a live broadcast.  Spanish newspaper El Pais tweeted dramatic footage of the disruption.
