Libya air force says it bombed tanker in Islamist-held port

SHAFAQNA – The air force of Libya’s internationally recognised government said Monday that it carried out a deadly weekend air strike on an oil tanker in the Islamist-held eastern port of Derna.The air force opened fire “after the crew refused to heed orders to stop for a search operation” spokesman Colonel Ahmed Mesmari said, describing the tanker as “suspicious”.

Greek coastguards said a 29-year-old Greek was among two crew members of the Liberian-registered Araevo killed and that two were also wounded in Sunday’s air strike.
