WASHINGTON -- The FBI says a team of agents arrived in Benghazi on Wednesday to investigate last month's deadly attack on the U.S. consulate and has already left the city.

FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright says the FBI agents were there just one day. She would not say where the team is headed.

Law enforcement officials had said that the FBI had been staying away from the Libyan city for security reasons.

The FBI was investigating a terror attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer expert and two former U.S. Navy Seals at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
