LIBYA: ‘ SHUTS OIL EXPORT TERMINAL DUE TO INFIGHTING BETWEEN GOVERNMENT FORCES ‘

#AceWorldNews – LIBYA:Dec.14 – Libya’s eastern oil export terminal has been shut this Sunday due to fighting between forces representing the country’s two governments, according to an oil official, Reuters reports.

Air strikes on Saturday, launched by forces loyal to Libya’s recognized government, hit targets at the port in an attempt to stop an advance by troops of the rival administration in Tripoli, who want to take control of the oil facilities.

Libya’s recognized prime minister has been forced into the East of the country since the Libya Dawn militia seized Tripoli in August.
