Ann Curry recently sat down with Libyan president Mohammed Magarief, who told her that there was "no doubt" that the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate was pre-planned.

On Tuesday, Curry interviewed Magarief about the attack, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The violence in Benghazi was initially believed to have been sparked by an anti-Islam film, but was later suspected of being planned.

Magarief has previously said that he believes the attack was calculated. He reiterated that in his conversation with Curry, calling it "a pre-planned act of terrorism" directed towards American citizens. She pressed him on what evidence he's seen to back the claim.

The interview, which aired Wednesday morning on "Today," is the latest example of the international reporting that Curry is known for. During her tearful good-bye on "Today," she said that she would be leading her own team with the chance to cover stories all over the world in her new role.

That was not immediately seen on the show, but was evident when Curry traveled to the Syrian war zone — the most dangerous place in the world for journalists — to report on the conflict there earlier in September.
