American sailors handed over control of a captured North Korean-flagged oil tanker to Libyan forces while in international waters Saturday, a spokesman for the Libyan navy said.
U.S. Navy SEALs seized an oil tanker off the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, stopping an attempt by a Libyan militia to sell the shipload of crude in defiance of the Libyan government. Supporters of the militia, which calls for autonomy for the eastern half of Libya, vowed Monday to try again to export oil again from the ports they control.
Ibrahim Jedran, the leader of eastern Libya's rebels, is exercising a three-part strategy to dominate this beleaguered North African nation.
Mr. Jedran denies that his movement is full of religious extremists.
Their aim was to highlight corruption at the plant, he said, because federal functionaries there were siphoning off oil revenue.
