WASHINGTON - A suspected Islamic militant under arrest in Tunisia is being investigated by the United States in connection with the September 11 attacks on US diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, US government sources said.
The suspect , identified earlier this week by the Daily Beast website as Ali Ani al Harzi, was one of two Tunisians detained by authorities in Turkey early in October.
News reports at the time of their detention said that the two men were stopped at an Istanbul airport as they tried to enter the country using false passports. The Turkish Embassy in Washington declined to comment.
