No suspects, leads after American teacher is killed in Benghazi

There are lots of questions tonight surrounding the shooting death of a U.S. teacher in Benghazi, Libya on Thursday.

Ronald Smith, a 33-year-old chemistry teacher at the International School in Benghazi, was gunned down while allegedly jogging yesterday morning. Smith was living in Libya with his wife and son while working at the school.

Why he was killed is still unknown, but he is now the fifth American to be murdered in Benghazi after Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed during an attack nearly 15 months ago.

Nic Robertson is following the story and has the latest details.

Surprising jobs report boosts stocks... but will it last?

The lead story tonight: stocks surge thanks to a strong jobs report.

The Dow soared nearly 200 points today, wiping away most of the week's losses. November's jobs report was much stronger than analysts expected.

The economy added 203,000 jobs last month, 20,000 more than predicted. The unemployment rate also fell to 7%, the lowest it's been in five years.

Seems like a whole lot of positive news, but is it as good as it sounds? Joining us tonight is Doug Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office and an economist for President Bush, and Austan Goolsbee, a former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for President Obama.
