The government has identified "a certain number of people" believed to be involved in the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior Republican lawmaker.
Investigators now have names to go with the faces seen in surveillance video of the terrorist attack, the lawmaker tells CNN.
Several weeks ago, the FBI released pictures of three men seen on that video. At the time, it did not identify them as suspects. And it remains unclear whether these are the men who have now been identified.
The FBI will only say that the investigation is "ongoing."
Last week, CNN reported that the U.S. Military has updated plans to "capture or kill" those allegedly behind the attack.
