No Maltese oil workers have been hurt in a major fire which has been raging since Wednesday at Libya's biggest oil refinery and oil storage facility.

The fire, at state-owned Ras Lanuf, near Tripoli, has forced Libya to reduce oil shipments.

The blaze started during maintenance works. Maltese worker George Ebejer said the fire spread to a discharge area.

Maltese Ambassador Joseph Cassar said no Maltese were hurt and the fire had now been contained.
