Stevens murder suspect killed in Cairo; Tunisian held in Tunis jail
Libyan Herald ^ | October 25, 2012

Posted on 10/30/2012 1:18:23 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

An Egyptian suspected of involvement in last month’s attack on the US mission in Benghazi in which Ambassador Chris Stevens was slain in Cairo yesterday, Wednesday.

According to the Egyptian Interior Ministry, the man — named only as Hazem — died in a shoot-out with security forces at an apartment in Nasr City, northeast Cairo. They had been sent to arrest him following information received implicating him in the Benghazi attack. He is said to have recently returned from Libya.

Security sources say he threw a bomb from the ground floor apartment but it bounced back into the building. Police then fired tear gas and exchanged gunfire. The building subsequently caught fire, forcing other residents to be evacuated. After the fire was put out, police say they found the man’s body completely burnt.

They say they also found 17 bombs, four RPGs, three automatic weapons and large quantities of ammunition.

The man was said to have rented the apartment for the past three months.

The shoot-out came the same day a lawyer in Tunisia said that a local man accused also of being involved the Benghazi mission attack was being held in a Tunis jail on terrorism charges.

The man, named as Ali Harzi, was one of two Tunisians arrested in Turkey on 3 October, allegedly having entered the country on false passports. It was later reported that both were believed to be linked to the Benghazi attack and had been sent back by the Turks to Tunis on 11 October. Harzi is reported to have been trying to head to Syria after having escaped from Libya.

According to lawyer Ouled Ali Anwar, Harzi has been charged with “membership of a terrorist organization in a time of peace in another country”.

Anwar is insisting on his client’s innocence, saying he is a “scapegoat to satisfy the Americans”.

Tunisian Interior Ministry spokesman Tarrouch Khaled has confirmed the arrest, saying the case “is in the hands of justice”.

A US intelligence official is reported claiming that Harzi has links with terrorist organisations. Another report says he appeared on the US intelligence radar when he posted information about the attack on a social media site shortly afterwards.

American investigators have so far not been allowed to question him.

coordinated cover-up IMO

This guy likely no more guilty than the hapless filmmaker in CA.

I suppose that most terrorists involved in the attack will be apprehended or killed before Nov. 6.

Probably pick up some innocent Egyptian off the street, gave him a name and told him he’s going to “die”. Then they will stage a fake shootout and the “suspect” will pretend to die.

Mr. innocent Egyptian will just go back to selling lamb on the streets of Cairo tomorrow as if nothing have happened.

The Eygtians will then laugh at America for falling for this kabuki theather act.

They may even go as far as giving Obama the credit for literally jumping into the firefight and shooting the guy...just like how Obama convinced many mind-numbed Obama supporters how Obama stormed the compound with the Navy seals and pulled trigger on while Osama Bin Laden was watching tv.

Chris Matthew will again feel the tingle up his leg.

I’ve become such a skeptic and I loathed that about 60’s & 70’s anti-war, anti-govt. people.

But when the things I am seeing, hearing and reading no longer make sense... when I can’t seem to wrap my brain around the reality of it all...not sure I trust anyone anymore.

It’s like who’s on first and I’m dying to go stick my head back in the sand. agghhh

LMFAO!!!! I just can’t stop laughing at the bouncing bomb part. I think they were watching Road Runner vs Wile E Coyote and said...”Hey!! why not try the bouncing bomb skit and tell them idiot americans that the killer got killed by his own bomb bouncing back at him”?

Remember Obama’s famous words about a national security team more powerful and better equipped than the military? Now, think about all the visits to the WH by the Muslim Brotherhood and maybe, just maybe - this is the National Security force he is attempting to put into place.

Or maybe its my imagination running wild.

Does that mean he won't get to try out for the Yankees' pitching staff?

Color me cynical, but the Muslim Brotherhood is killing off the jihadists who can finger obuma as the one who ordered the embassy attack.

Totally appreciate how you feel... I’m always prefacing my statements by “I’m not a conspiracy nut, but...”. I hate what the BO presidency has done. So while I’m not a conspiracy nut, do you really expect me to believe this?!?!?

It was an “Acme” brand bomb. He also had an unopened jar of Acme earthquake capsules.

Just another inventory number. doesn’t matter what happens to him.

I’m betting on an incredible jail break and maybe followed up with an attempt to capture and a deadly gun battle resulting in his death...or not.

I haven’t seen this on FR yet. FBI now able to interview man in Tunisia custody because republican senators made a phone call. I guess Obama did NOTHING.
