Former CIA chief to testify on Benghazi attacks


WASHINGTON (AP) - The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director David Petraeus has agreed to testify to Congress about the Sept 11 attacks on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the US ambassador and three other Americans.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, said on Wednesday that General Petraeus, who resigned from the CIA post on Friday because of an extra-marital affair, indicated his willingness to testify.

No date for his testimony has been set.
