Tunisia Releases Suspect in Benghazi Attack

A court in Tunis on Monday ordered the release of Ali Hamzi, a Tunisian suspected of involvement in the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya last September, his lawyer Abdelbasset Ben Mbarek said, according to AFP.

The ruling came after Hamzi, 26, was interrogated by four FBI agents and a translator in Tunisia last month, in the absence of a defense lawyer, with Mbarek describing the methods used during the interrogation of his client as "scandalous."
