Libya says six killed in airstrike near Brega

TRIPOLI, July 22 (Reuters) - A Libyan official said six guards were killed in an airstrike on Friday on a pipeline production plant just south of Brega in eastern Libya.

“This will be a major setback to future projects and a great problem to the maintenance activity,” Abdul Hakim el-Shwehdi, managing director of Libya’s state al-Nahr company which runs the country’s giant irrigation project, told reporters in Tripoli.
