BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Eastern Libyan military forces have full control of Libya's biggest oilfield, El Sharara, a spokesman said, in a challenge to the internationally recognised government in Tripoli.

There was no immediate confirmation or comment from state oil firm NOC which operates with foreign partners the 315,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) field deep in Libya's southern desert.
