REPORT: Eastern Libya Is About To Declare Itself An Autonomous State Read more:

(via BusinessInsider) A report from British intelligence company Exclusive Analysis states:

• Eastern Libya is about to declare itself a self-governing state within a federal Libya. The new state will extend beyond historical Cyrenaica to include part of oil-rich Fazzan in the Gulf of Sirte. Eastern Libya has 66% of Libya’s oil production but only 25% of its population.

• The Tripoli government is likely to use force to contest the eastern Libya's declaration of autonomy. It does not have the capability to reverse the declaration but is likely to contest control of key towns in the Gulf of Sirte and the Waha and Raquba oil fields
