The Tunisian government confirmed Wednesday that it has arrested a 28-year-old Tunisian, Ali Harzi, who was reportedly linked to the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The U.S. State Department, which has been under fire for its handling of the aftermath of the siege — most recently when emails surfaced that show the White House and State were told the attack was perpetrated by extremists the same day it happened — had no comment. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic post.
