BENGHAZI, Libya, April 27 (Reuters) - Libya's eastern oil port Zueitina will only open after damages at its facilities and its technical state have been assessed, the country's justice minister said on Sunday.

Salah al-Merghani also told reporters in the eastern city of Benghazi that a committee to investigate oil corruption had been formed, as agreed under a deal between the government and eastern rebels to end a blockage of eastern oil ports.
