(MENAFN - #Qatar News Agency) Libya's parliament has dismissed Prime Minister Ali Zeidan after a tanker laden with oil from a rebel-held port reportedly broke through a naval blockade. MPs called a vote of confidence in Zeidan after they were told the North Korean-flagged ship had escaped to sea. Defence Minister Abdullah al-Thinni was named interim prime minister, reported the BBC. Earlier, Libyan officials had said they had "complete control" of the tanker as it tried to leave the port of Sidra. But the rebels rejected the assertion. Separatist militants have occupied three major eastern ports since August. They are seeking a greater share of the country's oil revenues, as well as autonomy for the historic eastern region of Cyrenaica.
