WASHINGTON, June 28 (Reuters) - The Libyan militia leader suspected in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans arrived in Washington on Saturday morning, according to media reports.

Ahmed Abu Khatallah was brought to federal court in Washington from a Navy warship where he has been held since he was captured earlier this month, CNN and The New York Times reported.
