(Newser) – Four people have been arrested for their connection to the protests at the US consulate in Libya that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, and a former Navy SEAL. There may be more arrests in the near future, as security forces in the country say they have a large group of people in custody and are monitoring others who may be connected to the protests, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Meanwhile, the name of the third victim has come to light. Family of 42-year-old Glen Doherty, the former SEAL who hailed from a Boston suburb, has confirmed that he was killed in the attacks, reports CBS News. The identity of the fourth American victim remains unknown.
