Army Demands Freeing Up of Oil Ports

Reuters reports that Libya's army has told former militia fighters and protesters to end their occupation of oilfields and ports.

The Chief of Staff said:

"End your strikes without condition so the oil flows to the ports and the economy recovers so we can build up the state and the armed forces ... Our country is threatened by disintegration and lawlessness."

Prime Minister Ali Zeidan had previously warned that militias who did not join the regular armed forces by 15th December would be removed from the government payroll, a demand repeated by the army.
