Libya: Officials report US ambassador to Libya killed in rocket attack following an attack on the consulate.
The US ambassador, Christopher Stevens, had been on his way to a safer venue after protesters attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi and killed a staff member.
The three Libyan officials who confirmed the deaths were Deputy Interior Minister for Eastern Libya Wanis al-Sharaf; Benghazi Security Chief Abdel-Basit Haroun; and Benghazi City Council and Security Official Ahmed Bousinia.
The officials said the ambassador and three other staff were killed when gunmen fired rockets at his car.
The assault followed a protest in Egypt where demonstrators scaled the walls of the US embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over the same film which they said insulted the Prophet Muhammad.
