US Navy takes control of Libya oil tanker

The US has taken control of a tanker full of oil loaded from a rebel-held port in Libya, officials say.

The raid by Navy Seals took place in international waters off the coast of Cyprus, they say.

Libya’s Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was dismissed by parliament last week after the Morning Glory evaded a naval blockade to leave a rebel-held port.

The port of Sidra is under the control of militias who want autonomy for eastern Libya.
