Oil tanks in Libya terminal ablaze after firefight

A fighter from Libya's Islamist Fajr Libya group fires his gun during clashes in Kikla, Libya, on October 21, 2014Three storage tanks at one of Libya’s main oil terminals were ablaze on Friday after being hit by a rocket during fighting between Islamists and pro-government forces, officials said. The rocket was fired on Thursday by militiamen from Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn), a coalition of Islamist fighters. One tank was hit, said the region’s security spokesman Ali al-Hassi, before the fire spread on Friday to two other full tanks at Al-Sidra terminal. They expressed concern that the fire could spread to other tanks at Al-Sidra and cause an environmental disaster if not brought under control.
