U.S. forces working with law enforcement personnel captured a key suspect in the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, the Pentagon announced today.

Libyan militia leader Ahmed abu Khattalah was captured Sunday, according to a statement from Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby.

Khattalah is now being held in a location outside Libya, Kirby said.

Last year, federal prosecutors filed sealed charges against Khattalah over the Benghazi attack, in which scores of militants using rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons attacked the compound. Khattalah’s arrest is the first in connection with the attack.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. citizens died in the September 11, 2012, attack, which became a political flashpoint.

Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the Lord; exult before him! Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.
