A Libyan tanker arrived in Benghazi after rebels claimed they had seized the vessel from Libyan government forces.  NATO officials say they cleared the ship on Wednesday and allowed it to proceed to the rebel-held port.


The Libyan tanker MT CARTAGENA was reported to have been seized by rebels and is about to enter the opposition capital Benghazi, having earlier been "cleared" by NATO ships enforcing an arms embargo on both sides, a Nato official told Reuters today.
Apparently rebels seized the Cartagena, which belongs to the Libyan government's shipping arm, off Malta on Tuesday night "with the help of special forces from a European state", according to the news agency.
The ship is said to be carrying almost 40,000 tonnes of gasoline.
