Benghazi suspect pleads not guilty in connection to terror attack

WASHINGTON –  Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the Libyan militant charged in the 2012 Benghazi attacks, pleaded not guilty Saturday afternoon in connection to the crime, during a brief first appearance before a U.S. federal judge.

Khatallah, who walked into the D.C. courtroom wearing black sweatpants, a black sweatshirt and plastic slip-on sandals, spoke softly during the 10-minute hearing.

He replied “yes” when asked to swear to tell the truth and “no” when he was asked if he was having trouble understanding the proceeding.
