Egypt Says Cairo Police Kill Suspect In Benghazi Consulate Attack



CAIRO - Egyptian official sources say a militant suspected of involvement in the deadly U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi was killed in clashes in Cairo.

An Egyptian interior ministry source told CBS News on Thursday that the suspect in Egypt, known only by his first name, Hazem, was killed after neighbors summoned police about a suspicious resident. Security forces came in and exchanged fire with the man, before he blew himself up.

The news comes a day after AP reported charges filed against a Tunisian man who was arrested in Turkey this month with reported links to the same attack last month that killed four U.S. embassy employees.

Suspect Ali Harzi was repatriated on Oct. 11 by authorities in Turkey and was charged this week with "membership of a terrorist organization in a time of peace in another country."

Although Harzi is not is not considered to be one of the ring leaders of the Benghazi attack, AP reports that his court dossier links him to the Sep. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.

The communication fiasco surrounding the Benghazi killings remains a thorn in President Obama’s reelection campaign. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cautioned that a newly released series of e-mails sent by the State Department during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya was "not in and of itself evidence" that the administration had assessed the assault as a terrorist attack from the beginning, despite describing it as a protest gone awry five days later.

The account of the Benghazi tragedy has become a campaign target for Republican challenger Mitt Romney and GOP lawmakers, who accuse the White House of misleading Americans about the nature of the attack.

Between breastfeeding, playdates, postpartum fatigue, birthday fatigues and the countless other aspects of mother- and fatherhood, a Cuban couple tries to find new ways to explore something that is often lost in the middle of the parenting storm: sex.

Parenting v. intimacy, a delicate balance

Silvana Heredia

HAVANA — It was Summer, 2015. Nine months later, our daughter would be born. It wasn't planned, but I was sure I wouldn't end my first pregnancy. I was 22 years old, had a degree, my dream job and my own house — something unthinkable at that age in Cuba — plus a three-year relationship, and the summer heat.

I remember those months as the most fun, crazy and experimental of my pre-motherhood life. It was the time of my first kiss with a girl, and our first threesome.

Every weekend, we went to the Cuban art factory and ended up at the CornerCafé until 7:00 a.m. That September morning, we were very drunk, and in that second-floor room of my house, it was unbearably hot. The sex was otherworldly. A few days later, the symptoms began.

She arrived when and how she wished. That's how rebellious she is.
