U.S. Navy SEALs have taken control of a commercial tanker that had been seized by three armed Libyans this month.
No one was hurt in the Sunday night operation, the Pentagon said.
The tanker, Morning Glory, is carrying oil owned by Libya’s National Oil Company.
The ship was returning to Libya, according to a written statement from the interim prime minister, which said Tripoli asked for help from countries in the area.
