Benghazi consulate attacks

A Pakistani protestor hurls back a tear gas canister fired by police during clashes that erupted as protestors tried to approach the U.S. embassy, Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 in Islamabad, Pakistan. Protests by tens of thousands of Pakistanis infuriated by an anti-Islam film descended into deadly violence on Friday, with police firing tear gas and live ammunition in an attempt to subdue rioters who hurled rocks and set fire to buildings in some cities.  Four people were killed and dozens injured on a holiday declared by Pakistan's government so people could rally against the video. (AP Photo/Anjum Naveed)

Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a Libyan militant accused of participating in the September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, pleaded not guilty on Monday to 17 new charges related to the attack, including some that carry the death penalty.

Four Americans were killed in the September 2012 attack, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. The attack ignited a political firestorm in Washington that could still resonate if Hillary Clinton, secretary of state at the time, runs for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
