Security Council chamber

The killing of the United States ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff has been strongly condemned by the Security Council.

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and the other staff members were reportedly killed in an attack by unidentified armed men.

According to reports, the men stormed the grounds of the US consulate in Benghazi overnight angered by a video produced in the United States which is said to insult the Prophet Muhammad.

Ambassador Peter Wittig is the President of the Security Council in September.

"I am sure that I speak for all of us in strongly condemning the killing of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff and expressing our heartfelt condolences to our U.S. colleagues here and to the families and loved ones of the victims."
