Protests by Oil Facilities Gaurd over payment shut Al-Hariga port
Guards protesting over pay shut the eastern Libyan oil terminal of Hariga on Sunday, delaying two shipments of crude, a port official said.
A unit of Libya’s Petroleum Facilities Guard took the action because they said they had not been paid their salaries recently, the Hariga official said.
He said the protest had delayed two tankers, one of which was already docked at the port, with the second scheduled to dock later on Sunday.
