U.S. Won’t Seek Death Penalty for Benghazi Suspect

The U.S. Justice Department announced Tuesday that it will not seek the death penalty against Ahmed Abu Khattala, the Libyan militant charged with the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Khattala was captured by U.S. special forces two years ago and brought to the United States where he currently awaits trial in federal court.
