US Envoy Visits Libya to Discuss Consulate Attack

Libya foreign minister again apologizes for the attack


U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns is in Libya for meetings with top officials about last week's deadly attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Burns also is attending a ceremony honoring U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the three other American diplomats killed in the attack. The incident took place during a protest against an anti-Islam video that was privately produced in the United States.

??The Reuters news agency reports that Libya's foreign minister, Ashor Bin Khayyal, again apologized for the attack and told Burns that Ambassador Stevens was a "friend of Libya."
