The Libyan Coast Guard, Al-Zawiya Branch thwarted on Tuesday an attempt by some foreign sailors to smuggle diesel fuel outside Libya.

Five foreign sailors including a Maltase, an Algerian, a Syrian and two Egyptians were arrested onboard an oil tanker in the Libyan territorial waters off Al-Zawiya coast.

The tanker was directed to Tripoli Port to take the legal procedures against the smugglers.
