Kufra, 13 November 2014:
Armed men stormed the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO) storage building in the Gunfudah district of . . .[restrict]Benghazi, stole a fire-fighting vehicle and other spare parts and threatened the workers, a spokesman for AGOCO has told the Libya Herald. The incident happened on Monday.
“The armed men threatened the employees at the storage facility, warning them to stay away, before fleeing the scene with the stolen items,” Ahmed Al-Areibi said.
As fighting continues in Benghazi between forces loyal to the Libya government and those of Ansar Al-Sharia and its allies, the state’s buildings and possessions are becoming more vulnerable to theft by gangs of armed men.
AGOCO, wholly owned by the National Oil Corporation, operates the Sarir and Messla oilfields, the Hariga oil terminal in the east, and Al-Hamada oilfield in the southwest of the country. [/restrict]
