Two vessels exploded at Misrata port, little is know why


Two trawlers heading to Benghazi have been reportedly sunk near Misrata on early Thursday. The reports said the two trawlers were suspected to have been loaded with ammunition to Benghazi Shura Council revolutionary fighters.

The two vessels, sources said , were blasted and gone on fire as eyewitnesses could have a clear vision of the fumes coming out of Misrata port nearby the Iron and Steel Company.

No photos of the blasted trawlers have been anywhere, neither on media outlets nor on the internet, which keeps the incident quite hideous and blurry.
