Cartegena: "special forces/europe helped seize

A Libyan tanker reported to have been seized by rebels is about to enter the opposition capital Benghazi, having 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.
