    TUNIS, July 11 (Reuters) - The Libyan National Army (LNA) of Khalifa Haftar said on Saturday the country's oil fields and ports are "closed until the orders of the Libyan people are implemented", indicating a blockade on exports will continue.

    Speaking in an online statement, LNA spokesman Ahmed Mismari said that the loading of a tanker on Friday with oil from storage after six months without exports had been at the request of "friendly and brotherly countries".
