According to two senior House GOP leadership aides House Republicans have decided the select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attack will include seven Republicans and five Democrats.

The House is expected to vote on the legislation establishing the panel later this week.

Earlier Tuesday, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi demanded it be evenly split between Republicans and Democrats.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the September 2012 armed assault on the U.S. Diplomatic compound in Benghazi, which is in eastern Libya.

Benghazi has become a partisan political flash point overall in Washington over President Barack Obama's conduct of foreign policy.
