AP  |  Berlin 

German media are reporting that two air force jets have collided in the northeast of the country.

The dpa agency quoted the interior ministry of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state as confirming the crash of two Eurofighter jets Monday.

Local radio station Ostseewelle reports that the aircraft collided shortly before 2 pm (1200 GMT) near Lake Mueritz. There was conflicting information about whether the pilots ejected.

A video posted online shortly after the crash showed two plumes of smoke rising from the ground.

Germany's air force couldn't immediately confirm the incident.
