The president of Libya's interim assembly says that Libyan authorities have arrested some 50 people in connection with last week's deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

Libya's interim president, Mohammed Magarief, told the media that he had "no doubt" the attack was pre-planned, and suggested that al-Qaeda was behind the deadly assault.

That appears to contradict US envoy to the UN Susan Rice who told media, that the evidence suggested it had been part of "spontaneous" protests.

US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other US consulate staff, were killed.
