A spokesman for the Portuguese Defense Ministry said that there is no pilot of the Portuguese Air Force pilots are missing, and that the Air Force does not currently have a mission in Libya and does not have the Mirage F1 within its fleet, according to Agence France-Presse.

Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva said he was not sure the pilot was Portuguese, according to Lusa news agency.

The Libyan National Army on Tuesday arrested a mercenary pilot who said he is from Portugal after shooting down his Mirage F1 while fighting under the Fayez al-Sarraj Government in Tripoli.
