Suspected killers of US envoy arrested

Suspected killers of US envoy arrested

Two Tunisian men suspected in the Sept. 11 killing of the US ambassador to Libya and three colleagues have been arrested at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, local television reported Thursday.

The suspects were detained late Wednesday as they attempted to enter the country with fake passports and are being questioned by police.

The assault on the American consulate in Benghazi, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens died, coincided with a wave of protests in Muslim countries over an anti-Islam film made in the US.
