The death of American ambassador Christopher Stevens was a loss to both the United States and Libya.
That was the message from Libyan President Mohamed Yousef el-Magarief to the General Assembly on Thursday.
He said the late diplomat was among those who supported the country as it works to establish democracy after years of dictatorship.
"This human diplomat has found his place in the consciousness of the Libyan people. It was a day of sadness throughout Libya when he was assassinated along with his three aides. We would like to express our condolences to the American people for this grave loss. It was a loss for Libya as it was a loss for the United States of America." (Duration: 42″)
