Former Navy SEALs identified as consulate attack victims
Two of the four Americans killed in the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi have been identified as former Navy SEALs.
A source confirmed to Fox News on Thursday that one of the victims was Tyrone Woods, a 41-year-old former SEAL.
Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL from Massachusetts, was one of the other victims in the deadly attack, according to a family friend.
The U.S. government earlier confirmed that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, a foreign service information management officer, died in the attack.
The Boston Globe first reported that Doherty was among the victims. His sister told the Globe that Doherty, 42, was working for a private company providing security at the time.
A former ski instructor in Utah, Doherty reportedly trained as a sniper and medical officer after joining the Navy SEALs. He served for seven years before leaving to work at the private security firm.
