Lithuania sees fake news attempt to discredit NATO exercises


KULAUTUVA, Lithuania (Reuters) - Lithuania's defence minister said on Wednesday a report about a U.S. armoured vehicle supposedly killing a boy there was fake news and an attempt to discredit NATO exercises in the Baltics.

Posted to an obscure website but made to look like a story from Lithuania's top news website Delfi, the June 7 blog saying a U.S. Army vehicle hit a boy on a bicycle bore the hallmarks of a fake rape claim published last year, Raimondas Karoblis told Reuters.
