NEW YORK —

CBS' "60 Minutes" apologized on Sunday's broadcast for a flawed story on the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, and for the discredited source who claimed to have been at the scene.

During brief remarks at the end of the hour correspondent Lara Logan said "60 Minutes" was misled and made a mistake in its reporting.

Logan is the correspondent responsible for the Oct. 27 story. She had interviewed former security contractor Dylan Davies, who claimed he took part in fighting at the mission. But Davies' account unraveled last week, forcing CBS News on Friday to admit its error in running the story.
