US Ambassador Susan Rice admits Benghazi error

Help

A US diplomat hotly tipped to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has admitted releasing incorrect information after September's attack on the American consulate in Libya.

UN Ambassador Susan Rice said there had been no attempt to mislead the public, but some Republicans said they remained unconvinced.

The 11 September assault on the US consulate triggered a major political row over who knew what and when.
