US Commander Predicts US Mission Return to Libya 6 Years After Benghazi Attack

In September 2012, the US consulate in Libya’s second-largest city of Benghazi was attacked by militants from the Ansar al-Sharia group, leaving envoy Christopher Stevens and three other American employees dead.
Six years after a deadly attack on the US consulate in Libya’s Benghazi, conditions on the ground may prompt the return of a US diplomatic mission to the North African country, according to Colonel Adam Chalkley, commander of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response Africa.

 
Envoy Christopher Stevens and three other American employees were killed in the attack which led to the subsequent closure of the US consulate.
