Forces loyal to Libya’s internationally recognised government have carried out an air strike on an oil tanker delivering its cargo to a power plant run by the rival administration. The General Electricity Company said the attack at the plant near Sirte, in central Libya, was likely to cause disruptions to power supplies across the country due to a lack of fuel.The vessel, Anwar, had been transporting a light load of fuel from Greece. The raid, which was conducted by forces loyal to army chief General Khalifa Haftar, caused a fire on board and several crew members, as well as employees were injured at the plant.
