    American ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three officials were killed when a mob attacked the US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, the interior ministry said on September 12, 2012. The envoy died when an armed mob protesting against a film deemed offensive to Islam attacked the US mission, just hours after Islamists also stormed Washington's embassy in the Egyptian capital Cairo. Stevens, a career officer with the US foreign service, had been in the country for less than four months after taking up his post in the capital Tripoli in May.

    An armed group of Islamic militants, named Islamic Law Defendants, has stormed and killed 4 officials of the US Consulate in Benghazi Libya, one of them being the US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens who was there for a short visit.

    The attack is reported to have occurred overnight when there wasn't enough security support from the government forces to measure up to the shear power of the determined militants.

    This attack was sparked by a similar event to the US Consulate in Cairo, Egypt, and the cited reason being showing on the internet of a US based film that is said to portray the Prophet Muhammad.

    It's indeed going to be a tough diplomatic row to settle for the now forming and stabilizing Libyan government.

    The US ambassador to Libya has died after an attack by militiamen on the US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, reports say. Ambassador Christopher Stevens is said to be among four US officials killed in a protest over a US-produced film that is said to insult the Prophet Muhammad.The US state department has only confirmed the death of one official - but it has not named them.

    My take:
    This event will perhaps intensify and change the dynamics of the on-going US presidential election campaign!
    And possibly a shift for enhanced security detail/protocol for the US ambassadors and may be, may be an unusually tighter White House grip on censorship of US based films!

    Dah, an act of war. Let's see how American government will respond. If they do by appeasing militants and condemning film makers that will be another low for Obama, and that will likely improve the chances of Republicans - known for their staunch support of freedom of speech - to win the presidency.

    BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.

    Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.
    The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.

    "The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them," the official in Benghazi told Reuters.
    There was no immediate comment from the State Department in Washington. U.S. ambassadors in such volatile countries are accompanied by tight security, usually travelling in well-protected convoys. Security officials will be considering whether the two attacks were coordinated.

    Libyan deputy prime minister Mustafa Abu Shagour condemned the killing of the U.S. diplomats as a cowardly act.
    The consular official had died after clashes between Libyan security forces and Islamist militants around the consulate building. Looters raided the empty compound and some onlookers took pictures after calm returned.

    In neighboring Egypt, demonstrators had torn down an American flag and burned it during the protest. Some tried to raise a black flag with the words "There is no God but God, and Mohammad is his messenger", a Reuters witness said.

    Balozi wa Marekani auawa Libya


    12 Septemba, 2012 - Saa 10:45 GMT
    Balozi wa Marekani nchini Libya amefariki baada ya kushambuliwa na watu waliokuwa wamejihami na kuvamia ubalozi wa Marekani Mashariki mwa mji wa Benghazi.
    Balozi huyo alisemekana kuwa miongoni mwa maafisa wengine wa ubalozi waliouawa kufuatia maandamano kuhusu filamu iliyotolewa nchini humo ikimkejeli Mtume Muhammad.

    Taarifa zinazohusiana

    Idara ya mambo ya ndani nchini Marekani, imethibitisha tu kifo cha afisaa mmoja wa ubalozi huo ingawa bado haijataja jina lake.
    Maandamano ya kupinga filamu hiyo pia yalifanyika mjini Cairo dhidi ya ubalozi wa Marekani. Wakati huohuo, waziri wa mambo ya nje wa Marekani Bi. Hilary Clinton, amelaani mashambulizi hayo.

    Serikali ya Libya imetaja shambulio hilo kama kitendo cha uoga. Ubalozi huo uliteketezwa na watu waliojihami kwa bunduki kulalamikia filamu moja iliyotengenezewa nchini Marekani ambayo wanasema inamdhihaki Mtume Mohammed. Wanamgambo hao wanaoripotiwa kuwa na ufungamano na kundi la waislamu wenye msimamo mkali walitumia maguruneti ya kurushwa kwa roketi kuvamia ubalozi huo kabla ya kuiteketeza. Maafisa wa Libya wameiambia BBC kwamba hali imetulia kwa sasa.

    Machafuko hayo ya Libya yalijiri saa kadhaa baada ya maelfu ya waandamanaji kukusanyika nje ya ubalozi wa Marekani mjini Cairo kuelezea hasira zao kuhusu filamu hiyo kumhusu Mtume Mohammed. Kwa wakati mmoja waandamanaji hao waliingia ndani ya ubalozi huo na kuichana bendera ya Marekani na kurejesha yao.
