The United States Tuesday condemned a strike by Libyan aircraft that bombed an oil tanker off the Islamist-held port of Derna, killing two crew members.
The crewmen -- a Greek and a Romanian -- were killed on the Liberian-registered vessel, the Araevo.
Two other crewmen, both Filipinos, were wounded in the attack.
The air force of Libya's internationally recognised government said Monday that it carried out a deadly weekend air strike on an oil tanker in the Islamist-held eastern port of Derna.
The air force opened fire "after the crew refused to heed orders to stop for a search operation" spokesman Colonel Ahmed Mesmari said, describing the tanker as "suspicious".
