U.S. forces have captured a suspect in the September 2012 attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Take a look back at the attack and the political aftermath.
On Sept. 11, 2012, initial reports claimed a mob of angry protestors gather outside the U.S. temporary consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Protestors reportedly stormed the building, and Ambassador Christopher Stevens and information technolgy expert Sean Smith died of smoke inhalation. Here a portrait of Stevens is seen along with a condolence book outside the room of Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 14, 2012.
