Navy seals gained control over tanker
US Navy Seals on Mar 16 stormed the "Morning Glory" which was under control of Libyan rebels sutheast of Cyrous. 
The governments in Libya and Cyprus had requested the assistance of the US Navy and SOCEUR. No one was hurt tonight when U.S. forces boarded and took control of the tanker which had been seized by three armed Libyans. President Obama authorized the raid just after 10 p.m. U.S. forces escorted the ship back to a port controlled by Libya's central government. 
On Mar 1, the ship had turned off its satellite transponder and a week later turned up in the eastern Libyan port of Es Sider, which is controlled by a rebel militia that is trying to sell oil from the region for its own profit. 
On Mar 10, the tanker left port carrying 234,000 barrels of oil. The Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan ordered the "Morning Glory" to be stopped. With Libya's navy essentially nonexistent and its air force embroiled in its own infighting, the militia Zeidan sent out to stop the tanker failed. Parliament then sacked Zeidan, who subsequently fled to Germany. On Mar 13, North Korea revoked the "Morning Glory"'s registration, making it a stateless vessel.
