US ambassador 'killed in Libya'

12 September 2012 09:57 am - 55     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The ambassador was said to be among four US officials killed in a protest over a US-produced film that is said to insult the Prophet Muhammad.

The US state department has only confirmed the death of one official - but it has not named him.

Protesters over the film have also attacked the US embassy in Cairo. (BBC)

    Have any one a news of damage from NATO sorties in Libiya? NATO carried out 9,700 strike sorties in Libiya, but strangely so called media never carried out news/ pictures of destruction caused by them. They control media to the level, they destroyed that country in few months, which Ghadaffi could not do for decades. It's pay back time.

    Too many lunatics waving ancient outdated and conflicting teachings, claiming membership exclusivity with special privileges if you sign up to their god(s). The wrath of their gods manifested with chemical and nuclear weapons - you couldn't make it up

    What about , Tolerating the views of Others , taught in the religion. Everybody must practise this ?

    Ahmad Wednesday, 12 September 2012 04:10 PM

    Remember, innocents being killed by drones in Afghanistan and Pakistan are not the ones orchestrated 9/11. What you say that? Barbarism or Manslaughter? What the hell US doing in Afghanistan?

    Jagath Leanage Wednesday, 12 September 2012 04:27 PM

    Any nation, should not criticise or attack a religion.

    sandman Thursday, 13 September 2012 06:16 AM

    Like the late American Secretary of State Madeline Albright said on the death of millions of starved and malnourished children of Iraq , "IT IS WORTH THE PRICE" and Donald Rumsfeld's COLLATERAL DAMAGE , this is another price that the Americans have to pay for their continued "terrorist" activities in the world. Everything cannot be heaped on TERRORISTS, it is a thin line defining who the Terrorist is and who is not a Terrorist. And the Americans cross this line constantly. Their MIGHT cannot be forced into being RIGHT all the time.

    Gadzooks Wednesday, 12 September 2012 05:07 PM

    The film was produced by a lunatic Israeli and the lunatic Arabs have re-acted. The two peoples are cut from the same bolt of cloth!

    Gam Pappa Thursday, 13 September 2012 06:52 AM

    Stupid Kumar crying foul for only one American soul, then what about the thousand innocents being killed in Afghan and Pakistan by America??

    Rosh Wednesday, 12 September 2012 05:26 PM

    Seems the US backed regime change is on action...

    Fair N Square Wednesday, 12 September 2012 06:14 PM

    This is not a terrorist suicide attack like Parabakaran carried out in our country with uncivilized guerrillas!

    Hussain Wednesday, 12 September 2012 06:50 PM

    The US government has nothing to do with this film about Mohamed. This is just another form of terrorism, attacking diplomats. Just like what happend to MR in the UK when LTTE sympathizers demonstrated, fortunately it did not get out of hand. Muslims extremists the world over take it to extremes.

    rohandil Wednesday, 12 September 2012 07:44 PM

    America will wipe out terrorism soon and make this world a peaceful place to live....

    jaya Friday, 14 September 2012 01:19 AM

    Why you talked about what happened in othercountries?
    Why don't you talk about what happened in your country?

    tt Wednesday, 12 September 2012 08:05 PM

    The arab spring ! what a shame !

    Fair N Square Wednesday, 12 September 2012 08:25 PM

    who is a terrorist? A person who inflicts terror on others... Go ask the civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, and many other countries who George Bush or even America is?

    They inflict fear in their minds... in other words they are terrorists too...

    RF Wednesday, 12 September 2012 10:57 AM

    Consequences of freedom of expression... Some people think that insulting another religion under the guise of freedom of expression is law of the day....

    Kombu J Wednesday, 12 September 2012 10:41 AM

    This is none other than terrorism.

    Burampi Aatha Wednesday, 12 September 2012 10:29 PM

    Ambassador, hope you go to heaven!

    Why Aney, no comment from Booru Wansa.

    Nandalal Fernando Wednesday, 12 September 2012 11:39 PM

    When you kill others,you will have return by KARMA according to Teaching OF Loard Buddha.Is vicious circular of Nature

    Nodrog Wednesday, 12 September 2012 11:47 PM

    Killing in the name of any religion is wrong. No religion condones it, this is the work of narrow-minded radical fundamentalists.

    Potta Sunil Thursday, 13 September 2012 12:36 AM

    Killing must be condemned and that too a wrong person.

    Laminate Thursday, 13 September 2012 12:52 AM

    Anyway its sad to hear, victims were the Ambassador and the officials...

    kumar Wednesday, 12 September 2012 11:23 AM

    Killing of the Ambassador cannot be justified in that way. He is not the one who produced the said film. This is utter barbarism from uncivilized extremists.

    vik Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:08 AM

    Send Mr. R. Blake to investigate.

    ramkuumar Wednesday, 12 September 2012 11:24 AM

    A return for what you have done to them, it is not acceptable. but truth is that

    perera Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:08 AM

    who armed these rebels?
    guess who

    this is their gratitude

    the west never learn do they

    habeeb Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:30 AM

    Freemasons were behind fuding the pastor to prodeuce the film insulting islam. The injternational community should adopt a law preventing any kind of insultation on other religions. also should press you tube to delete the trailers of the movie "Innocence of muslim". The wetern world provoccate other religiouse communities to do these kind of things.Freemasons are not only against islam, but against all other religiouse communities. US have accpeted the free masons since the time they print symbol of free masons on US 1dollar bill. It says "Annuit coeptics" the new world order.

    thissa Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:19 AM

    If Killing of Gadafi is justified by the West.. this can be

    Kolitha Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:23 AM

    I don't agree with America's role in most of the countries but we can't accept these brutal killings on behalf of Allah.
    So we should get together to defeat bother American dictatorship and Islamist extremists.

    solo Thursday, 13 September 2012 01:32 AM

    Killings of innocent people in Afganistan, Pakistan and Iraq is more terrorism

    Ken Wednesday, 12 September 2012 12:44 PM

    Exactly !!!!

    Sayan Wednesday, 12 September 2012 12:53 PM

    This is nothing in comparison what Americans have done to the Palatine,Egypt,Libya, Iraq,Afghanistan and now many of them lost there's loved ones.Americans must feel the pain of blood.

    A Ahamed Wednesday, 12 September 2012 12:59 PM

    US only said they saved the Libya from Gaddafi Regime now what happening and Benghazi is strong hold of US support during one side war

    MagodisThuma Wednesday, 12 September 2012 01:06 PM

    What about Terrorism of Libya, Afghanistan & Iraq are better countries now ?

    Einstien Wednesday, 12 September 2012 01:04 PM

    Insulting a religion is really bad,
    but killing the ambassador of that country is even worse

    Wall Street Saima Wednesday, 12 September 2012 01:55 PM

    Wow...this is called asking and eating!!!!!

    Randunna Wednesday, 12 September 2012 01:42 PM

    Those who backed 'unknown quantity'' with weapons and money now finds those very same guns turned towards them.

    USA needs to get assistance from Norway & try to negotiate with terrorists. How ever same time USA must make sure Human Rights of terrorists are protected in the process.

    Power of the film "Dictator"

    Frank Hilary Wednesday, 12 September 2012 02:36 PM

    It seems that the Americans had got their calculations wrong. The very people whom they claim to have liberated have turned their guns against the Americans. I think the last laugh is the best laugh.

    DHA Wednesday, 12 September 2012 02:48 PM

    ...Which means more Muslims are going to die......

    Sammy Thursday, 13 September 2012 05:01 AM

    Are Egypt & Libya in a better position, after disposal of Hosni Mubarak & Gadaffi, which was assisted by USA and the West?

    Dalu Banda Wednesday, 12 September 2012 03:11 PM

    Us without pant and minus the organs that covered

    Mohamed Thursday, 13 September 2012 04:55 AM

    Do not bring the religion into war.This is politically motivated war and fight for resources. Anything do with Muslim you bring terms like " fundamentliset " ,extermist and terrorist.. what word you use when others embark on muslims

    Space Cab Thursday, 13 September 2012 05:22 AM

    And that's where Cinderella lived happily ever after with prince charming.

    Dream on half brain!!! Did you really think that USA is interested in peace??? they are masters of exploiting chaos they love war they create war. because they make money from war

    saradiyal Wednesday, 12 September 2012 03:22 PM

    Who promote violence claimed by it. USA, it's pay back time. Good lesson to our rulers..

    Spartacus Wednesday, 12 September 2012 03:12 PM

    These guys have no gratitude and do not know how to enjoy the free world. Time to take off Iran before it is too late.
