WASH­ING­TON – U.S. spe­cial op­er­a­tions forces cap­tured a mil­i­tant in Libya ac­cused of play­ing an in­stru­men­tal role in the Beng­hazi at­tacks, of­fi­cials said Mon­day, in a high-stakes op­er­a­tion de­signed to bring the per­pe­tra­tors to jus­tice five years after the deadly vi­o­lence.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump iden­ti­fied the mil­i­tant as Mustafa al-Imam and said his cap­ture sig­ni­fied that the four Amer­i­cans who died “will never be for­got­ten.”

Jus­tice De­part­ment of­fi­cials were es­cort­ing al-Imam by mil­i­tary plane to the United States, where he’s ex­pected to be tried in fed­eral court.

“Our mem­ory is deep and our reach is long, and we will not rest in our ef­forts to find and bring the per­pe­tra­tors of the heinous at­tacks in Beng­hazi to jus­tice,” Trump said.
