    Libya Says Four In Custody In Connection To Consulate Attack

    Libyan officials have informed the U.S. that four people are in custody in connection with the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other embassy staffers on Tuesday.

    But U.S. officials have yet to interview the detainees, described as "militants" or to verify their involvement in the attack. She says it is also unclear whether those arrested are Libyans or foreigners.

    Muslim groups to honor U.S. ambassador in O.C. vigil - latimes.com

    Groups representing Southern California Muslims are planning a candlelight vigil Friday in Orange County in honor of the slain U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three others killed Tuesday after armed protesters attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

    Libyans express sorrow over killing of Americans

    Hours after learning of Ambassador Chris Stevens' death, the Libyan Youth Movement transformed its Facebook page into a tribute to the slain diplomat. It changed its cover photo from "Free Libya" graffiti sprayed on a Tripoli wall to a somber photo of Stevens with the tag "RIP Christopher Stevens1960-2012."

    A senior US official said extremists appeared to have used the demonstration against the film as a 'pretext' to attack American interests on the anniversary.

    Megaryef also said foreigners may have been involved in the attack.

    'There are non-Libyan actors present in Libya. They aim to carry out their own plans in our territory... (but) we will not allow that Libyan territory be used to implement these plans,' he said.

    His remarks coincided with an al-Qaeda statement that said the Benghazi attack was in revenge for the killing of the terror network's deputy leader Sheikh Abu Yahya al-Libi.

    It's something that you can't seem to find right wingers apologizing to the country for promoting and defending that video. Already the protests are dying down.

    Mitt is looking foolish. Simply because the Republicans are swinging the attack back to the lies proves they are trying to put this behind them.

    I have a feeling they just grabbed a few people from
    their jail maybe and threw the cuffs on them just to quiet this whole thing down.
    I would be shocked if they actually got those involved.

    This is consistent with other reports, where the attackers in no way represented Libya in particular or Islam in general.

    Hence conservative calls for ‘military action’ are obviously unwarranted and ill advised.

    We HAD BETTER do what we need to do, but obviously, most of the good, everyday citizens of Libya are not complicit in this unforgivable crime.

    Libyans like America.

    Terrorists want to drive a wedge between us.
