    A suspect in last month’s attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was killed Wednesday by Egyptian security forces. Karim Ahmed Essam el-Azizi, a Libyan who had been living in Cairo, was among a group of militants with suspected links to al Qaeda. He was killed by a bomb that he was trying to use against the security forces, according to one official, who did not clarify what role Azizi was suspected of playing in the Benghazi attack. Police also found 15 bombs and an array of weapons in his apartment.
