Armed Group Shuts Oil Pipeline in Libya
From First Post
An armed group from Berber minority community shut down the Italian-led oil company ENI’s pipelines in Mellitah Saturday evening, a source said.
“About 75 armed men from Zuwara stopped Italian-led oil company ENI’s ship 7 km off the Mellitah coast, demanding to stop their activities,” Xinhua quoted a source as saying.
The source said that one of the armed group got on board the ENI’s ship and met the captain who immediately surrender. No clashes were reported and the group took control of the terminals at the sea.
The action was carried out in order to push Liby’s parliament to change the constitutional draft over the voting system.
