WASHINGTON -- Former CIA director David Petraeus will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday concerning the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, news outlets are reporting.

Fox News says the former general is expected to speak off-site to the Senate Intelligence Committee.The House side is still being worked out. Petraeus was initially slated to offer testimony on the Benghazi attack, which left U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead, at a closed hearing before the Senate committee Thursday.

"Mr. Petraeus has indicated his willingness (to testify)," Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told Politico.

Petraeus resigned last week over an extramarital affair. The resignation has since expanded to include Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. Allen reportedly exchanged "possibly inappropriate" e-mails with Jill Kelley, a Florida socialite linked to the Petraeus scandal.
