An armed group shut a fuel pipeline from the Libyan port of Zawiya to Tripoli on Monday, restricting supplies to the capital, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.

The closure would also affect supplies of fuel to towns in Libya’s western mountains, the NOC said.

Tankers were sent to Zawiya to ship fuel to Tripoli, 45 km (28 miles) to the east, and the NOC said the situation was “under control” there.

It did not identify the armed group or its demands, but said its members had stormed a control room at Zawiya and forced employees to stop pumping fuel.

The group said it would take legal action against the group if the pipeline was not reopened “immediately and unconditionally.”

Armed groups regularly blockade Libya’s oil, gas and fuel facilities to press a range of demands.
