U.S. air strike in Iraq kills Islamic State fighter linked to Benghazi attack: Pentagon

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. air strike on Mosul, Iraq, killed an Islamic State fighter linked to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, the Pentagon said on Monday.

The June 15 air strike killed Ali Awni al-Harzi, whom the Pentagon said was a "person of interest" in the Benghazi attack, which killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
