Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has confirmed that a State Department officer was killed Tuesday in Libya during an attack on the U.S. consulate.
Clinton said in a statement Tuesday night that she condemned the attack in the strongest terms and has called the Libyan president to co-ordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya.
She says that some are trying to justify "this vicious behaviour" as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. She says the U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
But she says there is never any justification for violent acts like this.
She says the U.S. is working with partner governments around the world to protect American personnel, missions and citizens.
