US special forces working with the FBI captured a key suspect in the deadly 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
Libyan militia leader Ahmed Abu Khatallah was captured over the weekend near Benghazi, US officials said. His is the first arrest and detention by the United States in connection with the Benghazi attack.
Abu Khatallah will be brought to U.S. soil to face charges "in the coming days," said Edward Price, a spokesman for the National Security Council.
