Benghazi Attack Suspect in Federal Custody

WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Washington says a Libyan militant charged in the 2012 Benghazi attacks is in federal law enforcement custody and there is heightened security at the city's federal courthouse.   

Spokesman William Miller declined further comment regarding Ahmed Abu Khattala at this time.   

Khattala faces criminal charges in the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.   

U.S. special forces captured him in Libya two weeks ago, marking the first breakthrough in the investigation of the Benghazi attacks.   

A criminal complaint filed last year was unsealed after his capture.   

U.S. officials had been questioning Abu Khattala aboard a Navy amphibious transport dock ship that brought him to the United States.
