US forces have captured a man accused of involvement in the 2012 attack on an American compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi, President Donald Trump said.

Mustafa al-Imam was seized in Libya, the president said in a statement.

Mr al-Imam is facing charges including murder. The US ambassador and three other Americans died in the incident.

During last year's election campaign, the raid became a focus for Republican attacks on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. She was secretary of state when the compound was targeted in September 2012.

"Yesterday, on my orders, United States forces captured Mustafa al-Imam in Libya," Mr Trump said
