Angry protesters closed the depot of Brega oil and gas company in Misurata last night, which covers the needs of the city and the surrounding area with fuel and gas.

The protesters, who are members of the Presidential Security Agency, demanded payment of their salaries suspended for a year now after the Presidential Council issued a decision to disband the Presidential Security Agency without finalizing the legal and financial procedures.

There were conflicting reports of successful negotiations with the protesters and the reopening of the warehouse on Tuesday, while this information was not confirmed by the depot's management.
