(WASHINGTON) — Three officials with the U.S. State Department are stepping down over the Benghazi probe following a report that blamed security problems at the outpost in Libya on management failures.

Eric Bowell, responsible for diplomats’ security, and Charlene Lamb, in charge of embassy security, have both resigned under pressure.

The report said security at the U.S. consulate was inadequate because of leadership and management failures within the State Department.

Despite the criticism, the report did not recommend any disciplinary action.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.
