Bloodshed In Benghazi

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, is among four State Department officials killed in an attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, in eastern Libya, on September 11. Armed men attacked the consulate, setting it ablaze and burning it down. The violence was an angry response to a film produced privately in the United States titled "Innocence of Muslims." In neighboring Egypt, hundreds of demonstrators marched on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest the film -- saying it insults the Prophet Muhammad.
