Navy SEALs Take Control of Hijacked Tanker

CNN reports that “U.S. Navy SEALs have taken control of a commercial tanker that had been seized by three armed Libyans earlier this month.”  

“No one was hurt in the Sunday night operation, the Pentagon said.”  

“The tanker, Morning Glory, is carrying oil owned by Libya’s National Oil Company. It sailed last week from the rebel-held port of As-Sidra in the nation’s east. Libyan forces fired on the vessel but were called off by the U.S. Navy, fearing an environmental disaster.”
