Libyan authorities have arrested four people in connection with Tuesday's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, Reuters reports.
“Four men are in custody and we are interrogating them because they are suspected of helping instigate the events at the U.S. consulate,” Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Sharif told the news agency. He offered no other details.
“The incident in Libya — it was a terrorist incident, there's no question,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) told The Hill on Thursday.
President Obama vowed during a campaign stop in Colorado on Thursday to pursue the attackers relentlessly.
“We see on our televisions that there are still threats in the world and we have to stay vigilant,” Obama said. “That's why we have to stay relentless in pursuing those who attacked us this week.”
