Fire spreads to more oil tanks at Libya port

A fire at an oil storage tank at Libya’s Es Sider oil port has spread to two more tanks, officials said on Friday.


The first oil tank was hit during clashes between armed factions allied to Libya’s competing governments over control of the country’s biggest oil port, located in the east.

Es Sider and the nearby Ras Lanuf port have been closed since the fighting broke out two weeks ago.
