A suspect in the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was killed Wednesday in a Cairo suburb.

The attack against the US Consulate in Benghazi last month claimed the lives of four US diplomatic officials, among them Chris Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya.

According to Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram:

“The independent Al-Masry al-Youm newspaper, quoting interior ministry official General Mohieddin al-Sayyed, said the suspect killed on Wednesday could be an Al-Qaeda militant.

“The Madinat Nasr police department received information indicating that a terrorist, a member of Al-Qaeda, was present in an apartment in Madinat Nasr,” Sayyed is quoted as saying.”

As the police raided the apartment, the suspect allegedly attempted to throw a bomb at the security forces, which landed back in the apartment and killed him.

Security sources claim to have found as many as 17 explosives, several automatic weapons and large amounts of ammunition inside.
