US Captures Man Wanted in 2012 Killing of Four Americans in Benghazi

US captures key militant behind Benghazi attack report

US commandos captured the man in Libya during a joint mission that was approved by both President Trump and the Libyan government, USA officials told the news wire on condition of anonymity. "Because of this successful operation, al-Imam will face justice in the United States for his alleged role in the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi".

Mustafa al Imam appeared on video obtained by the USA government at one of the two sites of the attack, and he also likely operated under different aliases, an administration official told CNN.

"Our memory is deep and our reach is long, and we will not rest in our efforts to find and bring the perpetrators of the heinous attacks in Benghazi to justice", Trump said in the statement.

The U.S. announced on Monday the capture of one of the suspected perpetrators of the deadly September 11, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Trump expressed gratitude to USA law enforcement, prosecutors, intelligence community and military personnel for their efforts to bring him to justice.

US officials have said very little about the details of the raid. The mastermind of the attack, Ahmed Abu Khatallah, is now on trial in Washington. Ahmed Abu Khatallah is suspected to be the mastermind of the operation, and he is now facing trial in Washington, although the Justice Department is not pursuing the death penalty.

Oil prices soar on output-cut expectation
At that time, the OPEC-led group may announce an extension of the production cuts beyond the March deadline. USA crude's gains have lagged the global benchmark amid rising domestic output.

The U.S. will continue to investigate and identify all those who were involved in the attack and hold them accountable for their crimes, Sessions said.

Assailants armed with automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades blasted through the USA diplomatic mission before setting it ablaze, according court documents filed in 2014.

The 2012 attack resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith, a State Department information officer.

The attackers later fired mortar rounds at a Central Intelligence Agency building, killing two former Navy Seals. "Al-Imam is charged with "killing" a person in the course of an attack on a federal facility involving the use of a firearm and risky weapon and attempting and conspiring to do the same", according to a Justice Department statement.

"We will never forget those we lost - Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Ambassador Christopher Stevens - four fearless Americans who gave their lives in service to our nation".

Then-US President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came under heavy criticism from Republicans, who accused them of failing to implement adequate security for the US citizens.
