House Republicans are set to release a lengthy report on the 2012 Benghazi attack that led to the deaths of four American diplomats, NBC News reported.
The report will be released on Tuesday, following a more than two-year investigation, and it offers insight into the breakdown in the U.S. military's response to the attack that led to U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens' death, among others.
NBC News obtained the first 175-page section of the full 800-page House Select Committee on Benghazi report that will be released later Tuesday. The Democratic minority released its own report Monday.
The Republican majority's report found that 35 Americans were saved not by a "quasi-governmental militia" as previous reports concluded, or even a group the U.S. saw as allies. The Americans were saved by the "Libyan Military Intelligence," a group composed of military officers under the Moammar Khaddafy regime, the Libyan dictator who the U.S. helped topple, the report said.

Pat Summitt, the winningest coach in Division I college basketball history who uplifted the women's game from obscurity to national prominence during her 38-year career at Tennessee, has died. She was 64.
With an icy glare on the sidelines, Summitt led the Lady Vols to eight national championships and prominence on a campus steeped in the traditions of the football-rich south until she retired in 2012.
Her son, Tyler Summitt, issued a statement Tuesday morning saying his mother died peacefully at Sherrill Hill Senior Living in Knoxville surrounded by those who loved her most.
"Since 2011, my mother has battled her toughest opponent, early onset dementia, 'Alzheimer's Type,' and she did so with bravely fierce determination just as she did with every opponent she ever faced," Tyler Summitt said. "Even though it's incredibly difficult to come to terms that she is no longer with us, we can all find peace in knowing she no longer carries the heavy burden of this disease."
The European Union ratcheted up pressure Tuesday on the U.K. to trigger negotiations to leave the bloc and end the uncertainty that has rattled stock markets.
In Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she will use "all her strength" to prevent the EU from drifting apart in the wake of Britain's decision.
At an emergency session in the European Parliament hours ahead of a summit of EU leaders, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called on Britain to clarify its future, after Prime Minister David Cameron suggested that exit talks might not be launched before October.
Former D.C. congressman and civil rights activist Walter Fauntroy was arrested Monday on a charge of passing a bad check for $50,000 when he returned to the United States after years abroad, officials said.
Fauntroy, 83, the former right-hand man to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was detained at Washington Dulles International Airport after he arrived from Dubai around 8:15 a.m.
The check was written in the amount of $50,000, according to a representative for the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office. It was intended to help pay for a 2009 ball he had organized for President Barack Obama's first inauguration.
Attorney Arthur Reynolds, who is representing Fauntroy in the bad-check case, said Monday he had not yet spoken to Fauntroy and could not comment on the case. He previously said Fauntroy had paid back some but not all of the money.
Egyptian investigators said the flight data recorder of crashed EgyptAir Flight MS804 has been repaired, NBC News reported.
This will allow for the analysis of data that may explain why the jet crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last month.
The recorders arrived in Paris from Cairo on Monday to remove salt deposits. They are due to be sent back to a lab in Cairo to analyze the data.
The flight was flying from Paris to Cairo when it plunged into the ocean, killing all 66 people on board. The pilots did not send a distress call and no group has claimed responsibility for bringing down the plane.

The impact of Britain's vote to leave the European Union was swift and painful for Ed Bussey's small tech firm in London.
The founder and CEO of Quill, an online content company, had been looking to fill a software development job paying 70,000 pounds ($95,000) a year that's been open for six months. He had a job interview set up with a promising candidate from EU member Italy on Friday — the day after the vote.
"Because of what had happened on Thursday, he was not prepared to up sticks and move to London," Bussey said with chagrin. "He was saying: 'Look, I'm not sure I'm not going to get booted out in two years.'"
Authorities were anticipating violence as a white nationalist group planned a demonstration at the California Capitol, and they brought in more than 100 officers to patrol the grounds.
But after 10 people were hurt Sunday, they faced criticism Monday about whether they were properly prepared or too slow to get involved when the demonstration quickly turned violent in a clash with a larger group of counter-protesters.
"It was basically a free-for-all," said Cres Vellucci, an observer with the National Lawyers Guild. "I was just appalled that nothing seemed to be done."
California Highway Patrol spokeswoman Fran Clader said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow met with Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers for about two hours Monday "in an attempt to look for some lessons learned."
At least 25 people have died in West Virginia as a result of extreme flooding...

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow rushed to assist an ill passenger during a medical emergency on a Phoenix-bound Delta flight.
A passenger on Flight 1772 named Sonal told NBC News that the flight had taken off from Atlanta, and it was uneventful until the flight attendant made an announcement asking for medical professionals on board. An older passenger was reportedly having heart problems.
The young woman sitting in front of Sonal raised her hand to help, but she wasn't the only one, according to an account posted on Facebook by another passenger.

A Delta spokesman confirmed that a medical emergency had been declared on the flight. According to reports Tebow prayed for the man's recovery with the entire section of the plane.

Just 45 percent of Republican voters say they are satisfied with Donald Trump as their party's presumptive presidential nominee, while 52 percent say they would have preferred someone else, according to results from the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
