Bombardeos en central petrolera en Libia contamina a gran escala


Posted: 28 Jul 2014 01:52 PM PDT
A fuel storage site in Tripoli was apparently hit by rocket fire this morning and set ablaze. Satellite imagery taken today from NASA's Terra satellite shows a long, black smoke plume originating at Libya's capital and extending many miles to the west-southwest.  The Libyan government is asking for international assistance to extinguish the massive blaze.
