Hariga Port Remains Closed

By John Lee.

The eastern Libyan oil port of Hariga (Marsa al Hariga) remains blocked by state security guards, according to a report from Reuters.

The guards allege that they have not been paid for months.

A spokesman for state-0wned Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO), which runs the port and connecting oilfields, said the finance ministry had paid the salaries but the firm was still waiting for the guards to confirm their protest was over.
