Israeli army says one of its drones crashed inside Lebanon

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli drone crashed inside Lebanon during operational activity along the border, an Israeli military spokeswoman said.

"There is no concern that any information was leaked," the spokeswoman said.

Israel's Channel 12 reported that the drone crashed after it experienced a technical failure.

Tensions have risen along Israel's frontier with Syria and Lebanon this week after a fighter from the Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah was killed in an apparent Israeli strike on the edge of Damascus.

The Israeli military has since boosted its forces on its northern front.

Oil rises as OPEC+ seen sticking to policy despite India COVID surge

By Devika Krishna Kumar NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices edged higher on Tuesday as OPEC+ was expected to stick to existing plans to boost oil output slightly from May 1, suggesting it does not see a lasting impact on demand from India's coronavirus crisis. The group has also ditched plans to hold a full ministerial meeting on Wednesday, sources said. A technical meeting on Monday had voiced concern about surging COVID-19 cases but kept its oil demand forecast unchanged.
