The fight for Libya’s oil

leave a comment »

From Al Jazeera:

As the first tanker is due into the port of Tobruk, forces reportedly loyal to longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi attack oil facilities in the south.

As the huge revenues available from oil sales may have the power to swing the fight for Libya one way or the other, pressure to protect refineries is mounting.

Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Benghazi on the anger being fuelled in eastern Libya.
