Suspect in US Consulate attack is Libyan: Egypt
Cairo: An Egyptian security official says a man killed in a security ambush in a Cairo suburb is a Libyan national suspected of links to the deadly attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi.
The official says authorities identified the suspect on today as 35-year-old Karim el-Azizi. The official says a large number of explosives were found in his apartment including 15 rocket-propelled grenades and 195 hand grenades.
The official says that when security forces cordoned off the area late yesterday, the suspect detonated a bomb and was found dead in the apartment.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.
El-Azizi is the first suspect Egypt has linked to the Benghazi attack.
