Third oil storage tank at Libya's Ras Lanuf was set alight during clashes: engineer, witness

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - A third oil storage tank was set on fire during clashes at the Libyan oil port of Ras Lanuf on Thursday, an oil engineer and a witness said.

Two storage tanks had been set alight over the past week as forces loyal to eastern-based commander Khalifa Haftar and rival factions clashed, causing extensive damage.
