TRIPOLI, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Protesters who have blocked Libya's El Sharara oilfield since October have agreed to suspend their strike and withdraw from the site to allow output to resume, the defence ministry said on Thursday.

"They agreed to lift the blockage," a ministry spokesman said, adding that the government had agreed to consider their demands. (Reporting by Ulf Laessing; editing by Jason Neely)
