TRIPOLI, Libya — Unknown assailants shot an American teacher to death as he was jogging Thursday in Benghazi, a hospital official said, underlining persistently tenuous security in the eastern Libyan city where the U.S. ambassador was killed last year.

Fadyah al-Burghathi, spokesman for the Al-Galaa hospital, said the body of a man from Texas was taken to the hospital Thursday with gunshot wounds. A security official said the American taught chemistry at the city's International School, a Libyan-owned institute that follows an American curriculum.

No one has claimed responsibility for the teacher's killing, but suspicion is likely to fall on Islamic militants active in the city.
