Libya unity government urges UN to block ‘illegal’ oil sales

Tripoli (AFP) – Libya’s unity government on Tuesday called on the UN Security Council to block any “illegal” oil exports from the chaos-hit country after a rival administration won control of key ports.

The appeal by the UN-backed Government of National Accord follows the seizure of two eastern ports by military strongman Khalifa Haftar, who said they would be handed over to the unrecognised administration in the east.
