Libya: Guarding oil exports 'in everyone's interest'

Officials in rebel-held eastern Libya are calling on Nato to safeguard oil fields under rebel control.

In his first television interview the head of the rebel oil company, Wahid Bourgaighis, told the BBC it was in everyone's interest for Nato to keep a close watch over the facilities.

The rebels' first oil shipment, earlier this week, was worth over $100m and Orla Guerin asked him how urgently that revenue was needed.
