On the night of September 11, 2012, members of two related terrorist groups, Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi and Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah, launched a deadly attack on two U.S. government facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
Using machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars, the militants targeted the U.S. Special Mission Compound and a nearby annex in repeated assaults, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador John Christopher Stevens, wounding two more U.S. personnel and three Libyan contract guards and destroying both facilities.
Created separately since the fall of Libya’s long-time ruler Muammar Qadhafi, the groups have been involved in many attacks in the region, targeting civilians and assassinating or attempting to assassinate security officials and political actors in eastern Libya.
Members of both groups continue to pose a threat to U.S. interests in Libya and have been designated as international terrorist organizations. The U.S. government is committed to taking all appropriate actions against the individuals and groups responsible for the attacks against the U.S. diplomatic facilities and related actions against U.S. facilities in Tunisia.
Toward this end, the Rewards for Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual responsible for the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.
The U.S. guarantees that all reports will be investigated and the identity of all informants will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them.
If you have such information, contact the Regional Security Office at the nearest U.S. Embassy, and the tip line at www.rewardsforjustice.net or e-mail information to Info@rewardsforjustice.net
