Eastern Libyan force says "terrorist group" probably responsible for pipe explosion

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - A “terrorist group” is probably responsible for the explosion on a Libyan crude pipeline on Tuesday, a spokesman for an eastern Libyan petroleum protection force said on Wednesday.

The fire at the pipeline had been brought under control, Miftah Magariaf, from the force tasked with guarding oilfields in eastern Libya, told Reuters.
