Benghazi Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Ahmed Abu Khattala, the Libyan charged in the 2012 Benghazi attacks, pleaded not guilty to conspiracy Saturday in a federal courtroom in Washington, The Associated Press (AP) reports.

In a 10-minute hearing held amid tight security, Abu Khattala spoke just two words, both in Arabic. He replied “yes” when asked to swear to tell the truth and “no” when asked if he was having trouble understanding the proceeding.
