The deadly attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi was planned and "meticulously executed," the country's assembly chief told AFP on Saturday.
"I don't want to talk about what happened in other countries but as for Libya, the operation was meticulously executed," Mohammed al-Megaryef said.
He added that foreign elements could be involved in the attack.
"There are non-Libyan elements on Libyan soil and they plan to carry out their own agendas on our territory," added al-Megaryef.
The revelations deepen the mystery surrounding the attack, as evidence comes to light that it was facilitated by "major security breaches," according to the British Independent.
Intelligence officials received "credible information" of the raid 48 hours before, yet the mission's usually robust security force made no effort to step up security measures, senior diplomatic sources told the newspaper.
