    Libya: Attack On Libyan Hotel Leaves Ten Dead

    Libya: Attack On Libyan Hotel Leaves Ten Dead
    A Libyan affiliate of the extremist Islamic State group says it's responsible for an attack on a luxury hotel in Tripoli this week.

    Libyan security officials say gunmen stormed on the Corinthia Hotel Tuesday killing 10 people, including one American.

    The ISIS affiliate said the attack was revenge for the death of Abu Anas al-Libi. He died earlier this month in U.S. custody, just days before his trial for the bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998.

    Experts say, however, there's little evidence pointing to the jihadist army’s involvement.

    European Union Foreign Affairs Chief Federica Mogherini called the attack "another reprehensible act of terrorism which deals a blow to efforts to bring peace and stability to Libya."

    "Such attacks should not be allowed to undermine the political process," she said in a statement.

    The hotel incident comes as a U.S. House committee holds its third public hearing on the 2012 attacks on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

    There's little hope, however, of bipartisan cooperation.

    Democrats say they've been excluded from crucial steps in the investigation while Republicans accuse their left-wing colleagues of playing politics.
