    An armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam, attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi
    AFP, Tuesday 11 Sep 2012

    UPDATE 3: Egypt protesters torch US embassy flag, demand apology for anti-Islam film
    An armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam, attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday and set fire to the building, witnesses reported.

    The attack happened on the same day as a similar group of hardliners waving black banners attacked the US embassy in Cairo and tore down the US flag, but it was not immediately clear if the two incidents were coordinated.

    The protests came on the eleventh anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, when US cities were targeted by hijacked planes.

    "Demonstrators attacked the US consulate in Benghazi. They fired shots in the air before entering the building," Libya's deputy interior minister, Wanis al-Sharif Sharif, who is in charge of the country's eastern region, told AFP.

    "Dozens of demonstrators attacked the consulate and set fire to it," said a Benghazi resident, who only gave his name as Omar, adding that he had seen the flames and heard shots in the vicinity.

    Contacted by AFP, a US State Department official in Washington said US officials were still seeking information about the situation in Benghazi.

    Asked whether the attack in Libya and the earlier demonstration against the US mission in Egypt could be connected, the official said it was unclear yet if the protests had been coordinated.

    Another Libyan witness said armed men had closed the streets leading up to the consulate, among them ultra-conservative Salafists.

    The Libyan incident came as thousands of Egyptian demonstrators tore down the Stars and Stripes at the US embassy in Cairo and replaced it with a black Islamic flag, similar to one adopted by several militant groups.

    Nearly 3,000 demonstrators gathered at the embassy in protest over a film deemed offensive to the Prophet Mohammed which was produced by expatriate members of Egypt's Christian minority resident in the United States.

    For pete's sake! Why are so many muslims always pissed off?
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    These scum don't seem to understand what an Embassy is.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Oh noes! Not another US Embassy story on Sept. 11, 2012.

    Just like the one in Cairo earlier on.

    Have no fear ... the Obama admin. will once again clear it all up nicely by issuing yet another apology, for the embassy to give out, like the one below, and all will be well!

    "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the embassy said in a statement published online.

    I'll patiently wait for the vehement condemnation of this action by the moderate Islamic sects.

    Jeeze. another attack on the same day, 9-11. Coordination anyone? Nothing like them fearing the power of the US. I think Obama took care of that, with the help of that wonderful secretary of state.
