A general view of pipelines at the Zueitina oil terminal in Zueitina, west of Benghazi. Libya's acting Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni said the government had reached a deal with Ibrahim Jathran, a rebel leader controlling oil ports, to hand over the last two terminals of Ras Lanuf and Es Sider and end a blockade that crippled the OPEC nation's petroleum industry. Thinni said the ports had been reclaimed after an agreement with Jathran, whose fighters had seized the terminals almost a year ago to demand more regional autonomy. Jathran's rebels and their allies, who were all former state oil protection guards before their mutiny, had agreed in April to reopen the two smaller ports, Zueitina and Hariga, and then gradually free up Es Sider and Ras Lanuf.
