Tunisian prosecutors opposed freeing Libya suspect
An official with Tunisia's Justice Ministry says the prosecutor's office was opposed to the release of a suspect in the Sept. 11 attack in which armed groups assaulted the lightly guarded Benghazi mission and killed US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

 

Ali Harzi, a Tunisian who was one of the only suspects held in the attack, was released by a Tunisian judge this week for lack of evidence. Fawzi Djaballah, an adviser to Tunisia's Justice Ministry, said Thursday that the prosecutor's office is now saying it was opposed to the release. (AP)
