File picture shows a general view of the eastern Libyan town of DernaThe United States condemned a strike by Libyan aircraft on an oil tanker off the Islamist-held port of Derna, killing two crew members. The tanker was hit Sunday after it raised suspicions by refusing to stop for checks on its cargo, according to armed forces under the internationally recognized Libyan government. “We strongly condemn the January 4 bombing of a Greek-operated oil tanker near Derna,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement. “The ongoing escalation of violence in Libya against civilian commercial interests further widens a conflict that is fundamentally political,” she said.
