The Venezuelan military shot down an American drug plane.

The Venezuelan armed forces shot down a US plane carrying drugs that were illegally crossing the country's airspace, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said.

"A US-registered drug plane illegally crossing the country's airspace in the Zulia region has been neutralized," the minister said in a statement.

The minister also posted photos of the downed plane on Twitter.

As early as 2013, Venezuelan President Maduro announced that a legislative provision had been approved that would allow the downing of any drug mafia plane flying illegally over the country. The proposal to develop this bill was made by President Hugo Chavez, after which the Venezuelan parliament approved.
