East Libya Autonomy Movement Aims to Sell Oil Unless Demands Met

Reuters

TRIPOLI, Dec 10 (Reuters) – An autonomy movement blocking several oil ports in eastern Libya said on Tuesday it is set to begin trying to sell crude oil on its own if the government does not meet its demands.

"We have given the government a deadline by Dec 15 to meet our demands," Essam al-Jihani, a member of a self-declared regional autonomy movement, told Reuters.

The movement, which demands more regional power, has blocked several ports in eastern Libya for months, hurting Libya's oil exports.
