The U.S. announced on Monday the capture of one of the suspected perpetrators of the deadly September 11, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

In his opening statement, federal prosecutor John Crabb said Khatallah hates America "with a vengeance" and played a leading role in organizing the September 11, 2012, attack on the USA diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Imam was reportedly transferred to a US ship offshore and is expected to be brought to the U.S.in a matter of days to face the charges.

"Yesterday, on my orders, United States forces captured Mustafa al-Imam in Libya", Trump said in a statement.

However, if Newcastle can maintain their strength at home and make improvements on their travels, a top-half finish could beckon. That was to lead to the first of two promotions to the Premier League .

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a separate statement also said that he was "deeply grateful" to USA officials for their efforts.

Once on American soil, al-Imam will face trial in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues to investigate, the Justice Department said.

"Our memory is deep and our reach is long, and we will not rest in our efforts to find and bring the perpetrators of the heinous attacks in Benghazi to justice", he added. Earlier this month, another man accused in Benghazi, Ahmed Abu Khattala, went on trial in federal court. Ahmed Abu Khatallah is suspected to be the mastermind of the operation, and he is now facing trial in Washington, although the Justice Department is not pursuing the death penalty.

Harris' family said the woman's boyfriend was a passenger in the auto and took control and steered it off the interstate. Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Gelle said the incident took place Saturday afternoon on Interstate 66.

The attack involved armed assailants firing automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades blasting through the main diplomatic mission before setting it on fire before then attacking the annex. These charges include "conspiracy, murder and material support of terrorists in the deaths of Stevens, State Department communications expert Sean Patrick Smith and security contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty".

Al-Imam used different aliases and the officials said he participated in the attack at one of the two sites, but did not specify which one.

The attackers later fired mortar rounds at a Central Intelligence Agency building, killing two former Navy Seals. The U.S. was also monitoring al Imam's location for a period of time, and now that he is held in custody, he is being transferred to the U.S. for prosecution.

Republicans charged that because the attacks occurred just a few weeks prior to the 2012 election, the Obama administration deliberately played down the possibility of a terrorist attack.
