Obama: Benghazi 'ringleader' capture sends message to the world

The United States has captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the 2012 attack on its diplomatic compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi, which left four Americans dead.

Ahmed Abu Khattala was taken into custody in a secret US military raid in Libya on 15 June.

After the announcement, President Barack Obama said the arrest sent ''a message to the world''.

"When Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice," he said.
