Four U.S officials were killed in Libya a day after protesters destroyed the American flag in Cairo.

The U.S. Ambassador to Libya has been reportedly killed in an attack by militiamen on the US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens was said to be among four U.S officials killed when armed protesters stormed the American consulate, shooting at the building and throwing homemade bombs

The protesters were protesting a Youtube video which allegedly depicts Prophet Muhammed in bad light. The video was produced by a 52-year-old Israeli America, Sam Bacile, and has only been partly released online.

Already, the U.S. State department has confirmed the death of one official from the attack, but declined to name the official.

Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, condemned the attack saying there was no justification for it.

“We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Some have sought to justify this vicious behaviour as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” she said in a statement.

“The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,” Mrs. Clinton added.

The Benghazi attack occurs 24 hours after protesters stormed the U.S. embassy in Cairo destroying the American flag.  The Egyptian protesters were also protesting the You tube video.

Bodies of the four American are now at Benghazi airport to be air lifted back to America, a source told CNN.

U.S. president, Barack Obaama, condemned the “outrageous attack” in Benghazi.

    may God save our children and women, from these monsters this friday. I hope the security agencies are monitoring the kind of messages, ‘sheikh’ Gummi and other imams will be giving out this friday during jumat. It could be time for their human sacrifice.from the fury of evil men, protect us oh Lord.

      Have you ever seen or heard of a Muslim going as lunatic as to denigrate and malign the person of Jesus Christ? Why is it that the hobby of Christians is to attack the person of Prophet Muhammad? Is that what Christianity teaches the Christians? If hauling insult at the leaders of other religions is the pass time in Christianity where is the religion in that creed?

        the people who made that film are proper idiots, just like Dan brown and his da vinci code. Brown said very nasty things about just but u don’t see any lunatic christian making attempts on dan brown’s life. muslims have to grow up eventually. why bother asking for God’s protection when He can not protect Himself from those who insult Him?

          YESTERDAY WAS GROUND ZERO. YOU WOULD NOT HAVE ANTICIPATED ANY FRIDAY SACRIFICE OR PRAY FOR PROTECTION IF THE VIOLENT MEN OF PROVOCATION DID NOT DECIDE TO START ANOTHER ROUND OF BLOOD LETTING. SOMEONE STARTED THIS AND YOU KNOW WHO, HE IS NOT A MUSLIM. YES MUSLIMS MUST GROW UP NOT YET THOUGH. ITS GOOD YOU TALK ABOUT THE DAVINCI CODE. TRY AS YOU MAY YOU WILL NEVER FIND A MUSLIM THAT INSULT JESUS OR BHUDDA TO PROVOKE CHRISTIANS OR BHUDDISTS. THE DAVINCI CODE WAS WRITTEN AND CAST ENTIRELY BY CHRISTIANS AND JEWS. ONE WONDERS WHY THEY DONT WANT LIVE AND LETS LIVE. WHY ARE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS AT THE TIP OF EVERY WAR TODAY IN THE WORLD. EVEN THOUGH NO CHRISTIAN NATION IS UNDER OCCUPATION, THEY HAVE INVADED AND OCCUPIED COUNTRIES IN EVERY THEATER OF WAR TODAY, WHY? WHY DO THEY ALWAYS INCITE VIOLENCE? ARE THEY NO LONGER PRINCES OF PEACE? HAVE THEY BECOME PRINCES OF WAR THROUGH INSULTS AND PROVOCATION? IS THAT THE FUNDAMENTAL MESSAGE OF CHRIST? WE AWAIT THE DAY YOU WOULD SHOW US CHRISTIANITY IN ACTION, MAYBE THEN WE WILL GROW UP!

            u really are something. if everybody begins to kill everyone who provokes him, how may will still be alive today? I do not see how that film should incite violence, if we are all reasonable. Dan Brown said worse about Christ and he is still alive today with out special protection. Muslims need to free their mind from violence cos thats y the world hates them. There are a billion Confucians in China and another billion buddhists in India and none of them is as dramatic and attention seeking as muslims. Muslims need to grow up or end up been the most hated religion on the planet.
