BREAKING: Libyan Govt. Makes First Embassy Killing Arrests

From The LibyaHerald:

Ansar Al-Sharia to be disbanded “by force if necessary” as first arrests made in connection with US Ambassador killing

Tripoli, 14 September:

It is being reported that four men have been arrested in Benghazi in connection with the murder of US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Amercan diplomatic staff in the city on Tuesday night.  All are reported to be members of the extremist militia Ansar Al-Sharia led by Ismail Salabi.


Prime Minister-elect Mustafa Abushagour also told CNN on Thursday evening that a suspect had been arrested and that others were being sought. “Three or four are currently being pursued,” he said.

A source close to Abushagour has since told the Libya Herald that “some people” are now under arrest.

  Mitt Romney can flap his face all that he wants, but President Obama did promise that justice would be served while working with the Libyan government to catch these criminals. Off to a fast start thus far.
