18 March, 19:56

    (ANSAmed) - TRIPOLI, MARCH 18 - The self-proclaimed authorities of Cyrenaica on Tuesday called intervention by US Navy SEALs on a tanker transporting oil for a separatist group in Libya's eastern region an ''act of piracy''. The accusation was by Ibrahim Jadran, the 33-year-old leader of a group of former revolutionaries and the self-proclaimed Political Office of Barqa (the name of Cyrenaica in Arabic), a body which in recent months had announced the autonomy of eastern Libya and the intention to export oil independently of the central authorities in Tripoli.(ANSAmed).
