Armed rebels that have seized an oil port in eastern Libya have said that any attempt by government forces to attack a North Korea-flagged tanker loading oil at one of their occupied terminals would be like a "declaration of war".
Abb-Rabbo al-Barassi, self-declared prime minister of the movement, warned Libya's navy not to "harm" the tanker docked at Es Sider, according to a statement.
"Such a move would be a declaration of war," al-Barassi in the statement, which was sent to Reuters by a spokesperson.
