Libya oil exports to resume 'immediately'

A member of forces opposed to Libya's unity government waves a Libyan flag at the Zueitina oil terminalLibya’s oil company on Thursday announced an “immediate” resumption of oil exports from two of the key ports captured this week by forces opposed to the country’s UN-backed unity government. The United States, for its part, insisted that oil revenues are deposited with the central bank in Tripoli. Forces led by a controversial general, Khalifa Haftar, who backs a rival administration in eastern Libya, seized four ports in the country’s so-called “oil crescent” this week and handed them over to the National Oil Company (NOC).
