The group operates independently of al Qaeda, the Times wrote, though it espouses the sam "puritanism and militancy."

The Wall Street Journal reported that Khattala remains at large, while Ansar al Sharia denies any role in the attack.

Last week, the Libyan army blockaded Ansar al Sharia, which was then believed to have been responsible for the attack, in a remote region in eastern Libya. But army commanders said they lacked the resources to capture the militiamen. According to the Guardian, Ansar al Sharia was ejected from Benghazi and Derna by protesters in late September.

Disputes have focused most on establishing whether the incident was a terror attack, and whether the Obama administration ignored requests for additional security in Benghazi. (...)

Russia Cuts Off Ukraine Gas Supply To 6 European Countries | Zero Hedge

Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian state energy giant Gazprom to cut supplies to and through Ukraine amid accusations, according to The Daily Mail, that its neighbor has been siphoning off and stealing Russian gas. Due to these "transit risks for European consumers in the territory of Ukraine," Gazprom cut gas exports to Europe by 60%, plunging the continent into an energy crisis "within hours." Perhaps explaining the explosion higher in NatGas prices (and oil) today, gas companies in Ukraine confirmed that Russia had cut off supply; and six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas. The EU raged that the sudden cut-off to some of its member countries was "completely unacceptable," but Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller later added that Russia plans to shift all its natural gas flows crossing Ukraine to a route via Turkey; and Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak stated unequivocally, "the decision has been mad
