Benghazi militant’s next court date in September
WASHINGTON (AP) — The suspect in the Benghazi attacks appeared briefly in court Tuesday. Ahmed Abu Khattala listened through an interpreter as a federal prosecutor told U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper that thousands of pages of material are being turned over to the defense. A lawyer for Khattala, Michelle Peterson, said much more is on the way. The defense will use the material as it seeks to build its case.
The next court date in the case was set for Sept. 9.
Prosecutor Michael DiLorenzo also said the government plans to file new charges. Currently, Khattala is accused of conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists, resulting in death.
