A fighter jet from eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar's self-styled Libyan National Army was shot down in Dahr Al-Hamer district in Derna and its two crew detained, an air force spokesman said on Saturday. Haftar's LNA is one of the most powerful armed factions in Libya, where a U.N.-backed government in Tripoli is struggling to assert authority over an array of armed factions which have been competing for control since the 2011 fall of Muammar Gaddafi. The coastal city of Derna - 348 km (216 miles) east of Benghazi - is under the control of a coalition of Islamist militants and ex-rebels called Majlis Shura Mujahideen Derna.
