U.S. intercepts Russian bombers off Alaska's coast

The two Russian TU-95 Bear bombers flew into a so-called Air Defense Identification Zone located about 300 kilometers off Alaska's west coast, according to a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command in a statement to CNN on May 12.

Two Russian long-range bombers were intercepted off the coast of Alaska by a pair of F-22 Raptor fighter jets on Friday, the military said. At no time did the bombers enter North American sovereign airspace, said the NORAD spokesman, Canadian Army Maj.

Earlier this month, a Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Navy reconnaissance aircraft within the Baltic Sea.

The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative news website, first reported the intercept.
