Topic: Libyan forces say they retake oilfields after attack


By Ayman Al-Warfalli BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Oil security forces said on Friday they had retaken control of Libya's al-Ghani oilfield after gunmen attacked the facility, killing seven guards. The official, Ali Hassi, said his forces were also now in control of Mabrouk, Bahi and Dahra oilfields in the central Sirte basin, which were reportedly attacked by Islamists over the last week. Libya's two rival governments and their armed forces have been battling for control of the north African country's oil infrastructure. Islamist militants have also gained ground, four years after a NATO-backed civil war ousted Muammar Gaddafi.
