Staff at Libya's Waha Oil Company go on strike to protest against the sale of oil to a North Korean-flagged tanker at the Es Sider port, in Tripoli March 9, 2014. Libya's Defence Ministry has authorised the military to use force to stop a North Korean-flagged tanker from loading crude oil at a rebel-held port, bypassing the Tripoli government, it said on Sunday. The tanker docked on Saturday at the eastern terminal of Es Sider, one of three ports seized by rebels since August to press demands for autonomy and a bigger share of oil revenue. Local daily al-Wasat said the ship had loaded $36 million of crude. REUTERS/Ismail Zitouny (LIBYA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST ENERGY) less
