FILE - In this Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012 file photo, Libyans walk on the grounds of the gutted U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, after an attack the previous day that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

They corroborate the conclusion largely reached by American officials that it was a planned militant assault. But they also suggest the militants may have used a film controversy as a cover for the attack. (AP Photo/Ibrahim Alaguri)
