Es Sider Oil Fire Extinguished

Fires at seven storage tanks at the Es Sider oil terminal have finally been put out, officials said on Friday.

A rocket fired on 25th December by the Islamist-backed Libya Dawn set off the first fire, which then spread to six other tanks at the terminal.

The internationally-recognized government had approved a $6 million deal with a US firm to extinguish the fires, but it is understood that they were extinguished using local personnel.
