US Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi.
An armed man was seen during the 2012 attack at the US consulate, as buildings and vehicles burned.
The arrest marks the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assaults has been apprehended, according to US officials.
Chris Stevens was the first US ambassador to be killed in the line of duty since 1979.
The US consulate in Libya was in ruins after the attack.
The attackers used machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades to assault the compound.
Soot and debris spilled out of the US consulate in the day after the attack in 2012.
