The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has approved President Barack Obama's nominee to serve as U.S. ambassador to Libya. The panel on a voice vote Tuesday approved Jones, a career diplomat who has served in Kuwait, Argentina, Syria, Iraq and Turkey. If confirmed by the full Senate, Jones would fill the post that has been vacant for nearly eight months since the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens. (AP Photo/Gustavo Ferrari, File)
