The parents of two Americans killed in attacks in Benghazi, Libya, say in a lawsuit that Hillary Clinton is responsible for the deaths of their children.

The wrongful death lawsuit against Clinton was filed Monday in federal court in Washington, DC. Clinton was secretary of state at the time of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks.

The plaintiffs are Pat Smith of San Diego and Charles Woods of Portland, Oregon. State Department employee Sean Smith and security contractor Tyrone Woods were among four Americans killed in the attacks.

The suit says Clinton's "negligent and reckless" use of a private e-mail server compromised the Americans' security. House Republicans blamed the Obama administration for loose security, but not Clinton personally.

Attorney Larry Klayman is representing the parents. Klayman is a longtime Clinton critic.
