Ambassador Chris Stevens and three embassy officials were killed in a rocket attack on the consulate in Benghazi Tuesday night. Hundreds of protesters, angered by a US amateur movie that allegedly insulted Prophet Mohammad, broke into the US consulate building and set it on fire after a rocket attack. The US president said in a special statement that while America respects all faiths, nothing justifies such actions. “We will work with the Libyan government to bring the perpetrators to justice,” he said.
A few hours earlier, a mob of angry Islamists, some hoisting al Qaeda flags, stormed the US embassy in Cairo.
