WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are attending the return of the remains of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans killed in an attack of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, this week.
Obama and Clinton were to go to Joint Base Andrews in suburban Maryland for the return ceremony.
Stevens and the other victims were killed Tuesday during an attack at the U.S. Consulate.
U.S. officials are investigating whether the assault was a coordinated terrorist attack that took advantage of protests in the Arab world over an anti-Muslim video.
