Ali Harzi, a Tunisian man who was arrested in Turkey earlier this month because he was suspected of being part of the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, has been returned to Tunisia. He was returned to Tunisia on October 11, where a judge issued an arrest warrant.
Harzi and another Tunisian were arrested on October 3 when they tried to use false passports to enter Turkey. Harzi’s lawyer, Ouled Ali Anwar, protested that Harzi was used as a “scapegoat to satisfy the Americans.”
If Harzi is convicted, he faces six to 12 years in prison, according to Tunisian anti-terrorist law.
Concurrently, it has been revealed that the State Department has footage from ten different cameras that witnessed the attack in Benghazi. The government said the tapes are being “reviewed” by investigators. The FBI got the tapes from Libyans who had taken it from the compound.
