by Lisa M. Ruth (Former CIA Analyst)

Khattala is the first suspect arrested in connection with the Benghazi attack, which killed Ambassador Christopher Stephens and three other Americans. The U.S. District Attorney has filed charges against at least twelve individuals related to the attack.

The U.S. State Department has listed Khattala, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia, as a terrorist, and also officially designated the group as a terrorist organization.
