A North Korean-flagged tanker has started loading oil at a Libyan port seized by rebels in the east of the country, port and oil officials said on Saturday.
The Libyan government has threatened to sink the tanker if it attempts to leave the port at Es Sider in Ras Lanuf. The rebels aim to sell the oil and bypass the government to gain a share of the country's considerable oil wealth.
"The loading has started," a port worker told Reuters. A spokesman for state-run National Oil Corp (NOC) confirmed this.
