The State Department on Thursday released a cache of seven photographs depicting the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.
The photos, which mark the first time that the department has officially released images of the attack’s aftermath diplomatic post, do not appear to show expose anything new about the incident.
Two photos shows what appears to be Arabic graffiti, spray-painted on a wall surrounding the building that was stormed and set ablaze by armed militants during the attack. Other images depict what appears to be a charred sport utility vehicle in the yard of the facility, as well as other fire-damaged debris.
The images were released to the watchdog group Judicial Watch, which had sued the State Department in pursuit of information about the Benghazi attacks under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
