Libyan security committee investigating attack on U.S. consulate: official
Tripoli, June 7 (Xinhua-ANI): A security committee of the Libyan interior ministry has launched an investigation into the attack on U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, an official of the committee said Wednesday.
The official, Ibrahim Shrikssya, said at a press conference held late Wednesday in the Libyan capital Tripoli that the attack occurred after some unidentified people detonated an explosive device near the fence of the U.S. consulate, and the security committee's branch in Benghazi has identified the number plate of the vehicle used by the assailants.
Shrikssya stressed that security situation in Benghazi and most Libyan cities is "excellent" despite rumors by some media and people of the former regime to destabilize the country.
He said the ministries of interior and defense are ready to fully secure the General National Council election scheduled later this month.
The security committee has held meetings to prepare for the security of the election and determined to deploy about 40,000 of security troops to secure the election process across the country. (ANI)
