TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Eight senior members of the Libyan rebel militia controlling key oil ports have quit in a conflict with top leader Ibrahim Jathran, one of those who left said on Thursday.
"Jathran is not consulting his politburo (leadership team)," Essam al-Jahani told Reuters, explaining why they had decided to resign.
Jathran and the Tripoli government said on Wednesday they were close to a deal to end a port blockage that has hit oil exports and fuelled tensions in the North African country.
