Some of the suspects - including those who planned the attack - were from outside Libya, Magarief said.                 

The attack on Tuesday came amid protests over a video made in the United States that Muslims saw as blaspheming the Prophet Mohammad. The protest in Benghazi resulted in the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.                  

An official source also mentioned that the Libyan Interior Minister Fawzi Abdel A'al has discharged 2 security officials on the backdrop of what the state witnessed regarding the incident of the US Consulate.                         

The source pointed out that the Interior Minister has discharged his assistant in the area of North Libya Wanis Sharef and the head of national security in Benghazi Brigadier Hussein Bou Hmida, appointingd Colonel Salah al-Din Doghman as his successor.
