A group of terrorists on Saturday attacked an oil field in southern Libya, killing two and kidnapping four others, Trend reported citing Xinhua.
"Oil field 47 operated by (government-owned) Zueitina Oil Company in Zalla town was attacked by terrorists at dawn today, which killed two guards and kidnapped four others," said an official on condition of anonymity.
The attack bears the marks of the Islamic State militant group, the official added.
The east-based army, which has been in control of southern Libya since January, also said it stopped a terrorist attack on the oil field in Zalla.
This is the third terrorist attack on army positions in southern Libya in fewer than a month.
Located some 650 km southeast of the Libyan capital Tripoli, Zalla contains five major oil fields which have repeatedly been attacked by IS affiliates.
