Eastern Libyan force says it intercepted Turkish ship

TUNIS (Reuters) – Eastern-based Libyan forces have intercepted a Turkish ship carrying a Jamaican flag heading to the port of Misrata in western Libya, their spokesman said on Monday.

Turkey is the main foreign backer of the internationally recognised Government of National Accord, based in Tripoli, which has for years been fighting the eastern-based Libyan National Army.
