Russia Concerned Over Libya

The Foreign Ministry expressed deep concern on Wednesday over an attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and said it considers all attacks on diplomats to be "manifestations of terrorism."

"Moscow views the events in Cairo and particularly in Benghazi, which led to the tragic deaths of four American diplomats, with deep concern," the ministry said in a statement.

"We decisively condemn all attacks on foreign diplomatic representations and their employees as manifestations of terrorism that can have no justification," it said.

California-born ambassador Christopher Stevens and three embassy staff were killed in an attack on the Benghazi consulate and a safe house refuge Tuesday, stormed by Islamist gunmen blaming America for a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad.
