US Navy Seals have boarded and taken control of an oil tanker that had loaded crude at a Libyan port held by militias in the east of the country and escaped to sea. No one was hurt in the operation, which came at the request of both Libya and Cyprus. The oil tanker is now expected to be taken to a government-controlled port in Libya. Anas El Gomati, a Libyan analyst of the Sadeq Institute, comments about the relations between Washington and Tripoli.
