Embassy Attacks

U.S., Libya Give Conflicting Stories of Benghazi Attack

Libyan and US authorities have given starkly different accounts of what happened during last week's deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack began with a spontaneous protest over the anti-Islamic video that had already set off similar protests in Egypt, leading to the storming of the US embassy there.
