U.S. ambassador killed in Libya, anti-U.S. violence spreads

In this photo posted on the U.S. Embassy Tripoli Facebook page on Aug. 27, 2012, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, left, walks with an unidentified translator during a tour of Assaraya al-Hamra, or the Red Castle in Tripoli, Libya. Libyan officials say the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans have been killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi by protesters angry over a film that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
