The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that U.S. forces on Sunday captured a key figure suspected in the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012.

The suspect, Ahmed Abu Khatallah, is in U.S. custody in a secure location outside of Libya, said Rear Admiral John Kirby, spokesman of the Defense Department.

There were no civilian casualties related to the operation over the weekend, and all U.S. personnel involved in the operation have safely departed from Libya, Kirby said in a statement.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that the suspect was captured near Benghazi by American troops working alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation following months of planning.
