CBS has ordered "60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan and her producer to take a leave of absence following a critical internal review of their handling of the show's October story on the Benghazi raid.
The show relied on an interview with a security contractor who said he was at the U.S. mission in Libya the night it was attacked last year, but questions were raised about whether the source was lying.
A CBS internal report obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday found the network did a poor job vetting the story.
CBS Chairman Jeff Fager, who is also the "60 Minutes" executive producer, said he asked Logan and her producer, Max McClellan, to take a leave of absence.
The clashes erupted Sunday night in eastern city of Benghazi

There has been an uptick in violence in the city
(CNN) -- Three Libyan soldiers were killed and more than a dozen people injured in heavy clashes between the Libyan army and members of Ansar al Sharia, Libyan state TV said.
The clashes erupted Sunday night in eastern city of Benghazi and continued into Monday, the report said.
Ansar al Sharia is more a label than an organization, one that's been adopted by conservative Salafist groups across the Arab world. The name means, simply, "Partisans of Islamic Law."
In Benghazi, Ansar al Sharia was one of many groups that filled the vacuum of authority following the overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi.
In recent weeks, there has been an uptick in violence in the city, most notably in an assassination campaign that has primarily targeted security force members, most of whom held positions under the former regime.
DUBAI (Reuters) - Turn on a Saudi television and you'll usually get a diet of religious programming and uncontroversial imported fare. But there's much more to a "night in" for the average Saudi - they're also the world's most avid watchers of YouTube.
The programs of Jeddah-based UTURN, from drama to reality shows, are typical. "3al6ayer", or "On the Fly", is a Saudi version of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart". "Eysh Elly" is a lighthearted weekly review of Arab online videos.
