US ambassador to Libya killed in Benghazi attack
Cairo/Washington, Sep 12: US ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed as a mob armed with guns and rockets stormed the American consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, angry over a film deemed offensive to Islam.
Christopher Stevens and three consulate staff were killed when the envoy went to the consulate as a frenzied mob stormed the premises and ran over the facility setting it ablaze, Libyan and US officials said.
Media reports warned of more such protests erupting in Egypt as the ruling Muslim Brotherhood called for a nationwide protest against the film.
