UNITED NATIONS: The suspected ringleader of the deadly 2012 assault on an American compound in Benghazi was planning new attacks on Americans, the United States said, defending the raid that captured the Libyan militant. US commandos seized Ahmed Abu Khatallah near the Libyan city of Benghazi on Sunday, drawing condemnation from Tripoli, which considers the stealth raid an infringement of its sovereignty. But in a letter addressed to the president of the UN Security Council for June, Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, US envoy Samantha Power evoked “the United States’ inherent right of self-defense. “The investigation [on Khatallah]also determined that he continued to plan further armed attacks against US persons,” it added.
