The United States has informed the U.N. Security Council that a top suspect in the deadly 2012 assault in Libya was captured because U.S. investigators determined that he planned further attacks against Americans.
She called Abu Khattala "a senior leader of the Libyan militant group Ansar al-Sharia-Benghazi in Libya."
Power said U.S. investigators determined that Abu Khattala was "a key figure" in the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Power said Abu Khattala will be prosecuted in a U.S. federal court.
