BENGHAZI, Libya - Protesters gathered outside Libya's largest oil company for a second day on Tuesday demanding more transparency over how the country's new rulers are spending its money and more jobs for the youth.

Spokesman for the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (Agoco) Abdel Jalil Mayuf said the protesters were preventing employees from entering the building, attempting to halt work for a second day in a row.

"We cannot get inside. They are protesting against the authorities, they want money," he told Reuters on Tuesday.
