A Libyan man who was convicted of terrorism in association with the Benghazi attacks has been acquitted of murder for the attacks. The Benghazi attacks resulted in the deaths of a U.S. ambassador and 3 other Americans.
Ahmed Abu Khattala, 46, will be facing up to 60 years in prison for the crimes he was found guilty of. Prosecutors admitted that there was no evidence showing that Khattala fired any shots during the attack, but said that he was an instrumental part in the attack’s planning and success.
