Libyan govt slows investigation: US officials
Washington: US counterterrorism officials say the search for suspects in the death of the US ambassador and three other Americans in Libya on September 11 is being slowed by uncooperative or less-than-capable local law enforcement in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia.
Authorities there have not yet arrested suspects the US wants to question in connection to the violent attack on US compounds in Benghazi on September 11, say two US officials briefed on a closed House intelligence committee hearing on Thursday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the briefing publicly.
Egypt has arrested Egyptian Islamic Jihad member Muhammad Jamal Abu Ahmad for possible links to the attack, but officials said that key al Qaeda sympathisers remain free.
Libyan officials could not be reached for comment.
