WASHINGTON  — Attorney General Eric Holder says the FBI has opened an investigation into the deaths of the four people killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

The attorney general made the comments in remarks prepared for delivery Thursday in Doha, Qatar. The attorney general is in the region this week for meetings with his foreign counterparts.

In Doha, the attorney general said the U.S. is committed to working with the Libyan government to seek justice for the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the consulate.

On Wednesday, a law enforcement official said the FBI was sending evidence teams to Libya.
