Libyan President Touts 50 Arrests

September 16, 2012

Libyan President Mohamed Magariaf said that roughly 50 arrests have been made in connection with the killing of four American diplomats last week, according to an interview with CBS’s Face the Nation.

Magariaf said that some of those arrested were from outside Libya and that some suspects have ties to al-Qaida. "They entered Libya from different directions," he said. "Some of them definitely from Mali and Algeria."

He described the security situation in Libya as “difficult,” but said there was no specific threat to Americans at present. But he also hedged when asked if FBI agents could pursue an investigation within Libya.

 

"Maybe it is better for them to stay for a little while, for a little while . . . until we do what we have to do ourselves."
