Unknown gunmen have attacked a defunct Libyan oilfield leaving at least 11 dead, one of them a foreign national, the oilfield’s commander says. Three other foreigners are missing.

The gunmen, possibly Islamists, seized the remote al-Mabruk oilfield south of Sirte on Tuesday night.

The oilfield, part-owned by the French company Total, has not produced oil for more than a year.

In 2013, Total said they had withdrawn all their staff from the oilfield.
