(CNN) — The United States ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in a rocket attack on the American Consulate in the city of Benghazi on Tuesday, a contractor working at the mission said Wednesday after seeing Stevens’ body.
Three American security staff were also killed, said the contractor, who asked not to be named for security reasons.
He said he saw all four bodies on the street Wednesday morning. The bodies are now in the Central Hospital in Benghazi, he said.
Libyan Deputy Prime Minister Mustafa Abushagur appeared to confirm that the envoy had been killed, saying that Stevens was “a friend of Libya, and we are shocked at the the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.” 1 2
Washington (CNN) — The United States on Wednesday vowed to track down those behind the killings of its ambassador to Libya and three other Americans amid a regional furor over a film mocking Islam’s prophet.
“We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act,” said President Barack Obama. “And make no mistake, justice will be done.”
That’s that; a choice has been made. So it seems the title of this item was in err.
