CAIRO - Egyptian authorities are holding a man whose militant group is suspected of links to an attack in Libya in which the American ambassador was killed, US officials in Washington and a security source in Cairo said on Saturday.

"They arrested Mohamed Gamal," said one US official.

The security source in Cairo, giving the man's full name as Mohamed Gamal Abu Ahmed, said the suspect was being questioned about an alleged role in the attacks in Benghazi in September in which Christopher Stevens, the US ambassador, died along with three other American officials.
