September 12, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is vowing to work with Libya's government to bring to justice the killers of the U.S. ambassador to that country and three other Americans.
He says American mourns the deaths, but that the work of the embassy personnel "will live on."
Chris Stevens is the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in an attack since 1979, when Ambassador Adolph Dubs was killed in Afghanistan.
Obama is ordering stepped-up security at U.S. embassies overseas.
U.S. officials say some 50 Marines are being sent to Libya to reinforce security at U.S. diplomatic facilities.
