A North Korean-flagged tanker has docked at an oil port in eastern Libya controlled by armed protesters who have threatened to sell oil bypassing the Tripoli government, oil officials said on Saturday, Reuters reported.

The tanker Morning Glory was preparing to load crude at the Es-Sider port, said an oil official, asking not to be named. Oil workers in the port confirmed the docking.

"We have informed the government and the defense ministry for their action," the official said. "They are trying to buy oil illegally."
