Libya’s Hariga oil port operating normally following protest

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TOBRUK – Libya’s eastern oil export port of Hariga was on Friday working normally a day after a protest at its gate, according to Reuters.

Late on Thursday, dozens of tribesmen staged a demonstration at the port’s gate in protest against the appointment of Ali Abd-al-Aziz al-Isawi, a suspect in the case of the assassination of General Abdul Fatah Younis, as a Minister of Economy by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord.

Spokesman for the Interim Government in eastern Libya, Hatem al-Oraibi, had on Thursday alerted reporters in a news chat room to “reports of a closure of the Hariga oil port by a protest of the Obeidat tribe”, according to Reuters.

The Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation denied in a statement that a protest had taken place at the port.
