Zeenews Bureau

New York: The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may soon get a chance to question a suspect in the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to a report.

Ali Ani al Harzi, who had updated the attack on a social networking site, was detained in Turkey on the appeal of the US. From turkey, he was transferred to Tunisia, where he is under police remand. Meanwhile, the US is involved in the formalities and procedures to get hold of him.

"We are very pleased the Tunisian government is working with American investigators to allow in person access to Ali Ani al Harzi. Under this arrangement the interviews will be under Tunisian supervision and consistent with their sovereignty and meets the needs of our investigative team," US Senators Lindsey Graham and Saxby Chambliss said.

The attack on US embassy in Libya took place on the anniversary of 9/11 attacks, which killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

As per reports in CNN, the FBI is looking for other suspects in the case too.
