U.N. blacklists India-flagged ship carrying eastern Libya oil | Reuters

UNITED NATIONS The United Nations Security Council Libya sanctions committee blacklisted on Wednesday an Indian-flagged tanker carrying crude oil shipped by the rival eastern Libya government, said diplomats, which would prevent it from entering any ports.

Libyan U.N. Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi wrote to the 15-member sanctions committee asking that the Distya Ameya tanker, which left the port of Marsa el-Hariga late on Monday, be blacklisted, according to a letter seen by Reuters.
