Libyan tribal leader says oil output to resume

TUNIS (Reuters) - A tribal leader in Libya’s oil-producing region on Monday indicated tribes there were ending a blockade on output and exports, saying “we opened the oil”, and have handed authority to eastern-based forces to negotiate a restart in production.

However, some other tribal leaders in the region did not take part in the issuing of the statement, which came after the National Oil Corporation said international talks were under way over a resumption in production.
