Libya convenes militias to take action against US ambassador's killers
Senior Benghazi commanders have been summoned to the capital Tripoli today to plan action against Islamist extremists accused of killing the US ambassador as al-Qaeda warned of more attacks on American officials.
The new prime mininster, Mustafa Abushagur, and acting president, Mohammed Magarief, are understood to have called the meeting in response to pressure from President Barack Obama to take action.
The meeting will consider to what extent the attack was the work of local Islamist extremists, and how much it was co-ordinated with the "foreign elements" identified by Mr Magarief in interviews over the weekend, particularly members of Al-Qaeda from other parts of North Africa.
