American teacher killed in Benghazi
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - Libyan officials say an American teacher has been shot to death while jogging in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi.
Fadyah al-Burghathi, spokeswoman for the Al-Galaa hospital, says the body of a man from Texas was brought to the hospital on Thursday with gunshot wounds.
A security official says the American taught chemistry at the city's International School, a Libyan-owned institute that follows an American curriculum. No one has claimed responsibility for the teacher's killing.
But the security official, Ibrahim al-Sharaa, says the American was jogging near the U.S. Consulate, where the American ambassador and three other Americans were killed by Islamic militants last September.
