This undated US Air Force photo shows an MQ-1 Predator unmanned aircraft as it prepares for takeoffThe US military has deployed two MQ-1 Predator surveillance drones and 70 airmen to Latvia for a two-week training mission aimed at reassuring European allies wary of Russia. The mission, which began Friday and is due to end on September 15, comes as the United States increases military exercises and training in Eastern Europe after Russia’s annexation of Crimea and repeated clashes in Ukraine between nationalists and pro-Russian separatists. The drones — the first deployment of such unarmed, surveillance aircraft by the US military to Latvia for a training mission with allies — will be used in Latvian air space.
