WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Libyan militant charged in the Benghazi attacks has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy.

   Ahmed Abu Khattala made his initial appearance in federal court in the nation's capital on Saturday.

   A grand jury indictment says Abu Khattala took part in a conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists in the 2012 attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

   Abu Khattala was flown by a military helicopter from a Navy ship to Washington earlier Saturday.

   In court, he wore a two-piece black track suit and kept his hands behind his back. He looked impassively at the judge for most of a 10-minute court hearing.
