The Pentagon has said that 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.

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 13 April.
