Suspect in Benghazi Terror Attack Captured in Libya: U.S.

Posted: Updated:
(NBC News) --An administration official says a suspect in the Benghazi consulate attack was arrested over the weekend in Libya.

Ahmed Abu Khattala has been suspected in the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2012 attack.

Khattala told Reuters in an interview in October 2012 that he had only heard he was a suspect through news media and was surprised that officials had told journalists he was at large.

"These reports say that no one knows where I am and that I am hiding," he said. "But here I am in the open, sitting in a hotel with you. I'm even going to pick up my sister's kids from school soon."

The militia commander acknowledged he was present during the incident but he was not one of the ringleaders.
