But according to ABC News, the U.S. Justice Department will not seek the death penalty for Khattala if he is convicted, although, as spokeswoman Emily Pierce said, they are still "committed to ensuring that the defendant is held accountable."

Khattala's attorney Eric Lewis called the decision by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch "courageous."

The Libyan militant faces charges that include murder, aiding terrorists, and destroying U.S. property in Benghazi. The incident has continued to reflect negatively on Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was serving then as the U.S. secretary of state.
