US seeks help in capturing Benghazi suspects

The US has appealed to armed groups in Libya for help in capturing five people suspected of taking part in last year's deadly attack on its consulate in Benghazi.

The men were identified by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation this week, eight months after the incident that killed four Americans in the eastern Libyan city.

The FBI earlier this month released photos of the suspects captured by security cameras during the September 11, 2012, attack. Among the victims was Christopher Stevens, the US ambassador, who died from smoke inhalation.

The FBI is now trying to locate the men, Al Jazeera reports exclusively.

The US has not officially asked the Libyan government to apprehend the men, but Al Jazeera has learned that US officials have tried to get powerful armed groups to cooperate. So far those groups have been non-committal.

The US knows the Libya government is weak and that the country's official security structures rely on the private brigades for security.

What a joke... they knew where they were and didn't pick them up and immediately after the attack Obama so pissed off the head of Libya that it took days and days to get the FBI in to do their one-hour investigation.
