Religion of death and destruction strikes yet again on 9/11. Obama funded these terrorists in his private, illegal and undeclared war to oust Mubarak. via US Official Killed In Libya Prophet Protest.
A US official has been killed and others wounded in Libya as an armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam attacked the US consulate in Benghazi.
Libya’s Supreme Security Committee spokesman said: “One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes.”
But Abdel Monem al Hurr said he did not know the exact number of injured.
Armed gunmen attacked the compound on Tuesday evening, clashing with Libyan security forces before the latter withdrew as they came under heavy fire.
Reporters on the scene said they could see looters raiding the compound, walking off with desks, chairs and washing machines.
Libya’s deputy interior minister Wanis al Sharef said that other staff members were evacuated “and are safe and sound”.
In the Egyptian capital, Cairo, earlier, protesters climbed the walls of the US embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it.
The protests were sparked by outrage over a video being promoted by an extreme anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian campaigner in the US, which the demonstrators say insults the Prophet Mohammed.
The US condemned the attack in Benghazi, amid reports that the mission had been set on fire and targeted with rocket-propelled grenades.
“We can confirm that our office in Benghazi, Libya, has been attacked by a group of militants,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
“We condemn in strongest terms this attack,” she added in a statement issued before reports of the death, which came on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
US officials were working with the Libyans to secure the compound, Nuland said, adding that the earlier protest in Cairo had ended.
Abdelmonoem al Horr, a spokesman for the Libyan interior ministry’s security commission, said the grenades were fired from a nearby farm at the building.
Security forces and the interior ministry were trying to contain the situation, he added.
The film apparently depicts Mohammed as a fraud, showing him having sex and calling for massacres.
He had multiple wives, one was six years old and not only called for massacres but led and participated in them. Muslims celebrate that fact.
Update: Video of Muslims firing RPG’s into the embassy:
(Reuters) – The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three embassy staff were killed in an attack on the Benghazi consulate and a safe house refuge, stormed by Islamist gunmen blaming America for a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad.
Gunmen attacked and set fire to the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, the cradle of last year’s U.S.-backed uprising against Muammar Gaddafi’s 42-year rule. Another assault was mounted on the U.S. embassy in Cairo.
It was not immediately clear precisely how or where California-born ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed during the assault. Stevens was a key player when the Obama administration supported the anti-Gaddafi insurgency.
U.S. consular staff were rushed to a safe house after the initial attack, Libya’s Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Al-Sharif said. An evacuation plane with U.S. commando units then arrived from Tripoli to evacuate them from the house.
“It was supposed to be a secret place and we were surprised the armed groups knew about it. There was shooting,” Sharif said. Two U.S. personnel were killed there, he said. Two other people were killed at the main consular building and between 12 and 17 wounded.
