Libya's prime minister has threatened to bomb a North Korean-flagged tanker if it tries to export oil from a rebel-controlled port.

Ali Zeidan said that orders had been issued to arrest the tanker's crew.

Earlier, separatist militants said they had started loading oil on to the tanker at Sidra port, east of Tripoli.
