TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - Unknown assailants in Libya have fatally shot an American teacher as the Texas man was jogging in Benghazi.
A spokeswoman at the Al-Galaa hospital said the body of the Texan was brought to the hospital on Thursday with gunshot wounds. The name of the slain man wasn't immediately released.
A security official says the American taught chemistry at the city's International School, a Libyan-owned institute that follows an American curriculum.
No one has claimed responsibility for the teacher's killing but suspicion is likely to fall on Islamic militants active in the city.
Officials say the victim was jogging near the U.S. Consulate, where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed by Islamic militants in September 2012.
