Egypt Denies US Access to Suspect Linked to Benghazi Attack

Newsmax - The United States has been denied direct access to a suspect held in Egypt in connection with the Benghazi attack on the U.S. Embassy in September, according to Fox News.
U.S. authorities have been barred from interrogating Mohammed Jamal — also known as Abu Ahmed — who is suspected of setting up Islamist training camps in Eastern Libya. Militants involved in the Sept. 11 Benghazi terrorist attack allegedly used the camps for training.

It is not believed that Jamal directly took part in the attack that left four Americans dead, including U.S, Ambassador Chris Stevens. However, this marks at least the second time the United States has been barred from interrogating a suspect held by a foreign government, Fox News reports.
