WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday denounced a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya 's eastern city of Benghazi, vowing to bring the killers of four U. S. diplomats to justice.
"The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack," the president said in a statement delivered at the White House Rose Garden, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at his side.
"And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people," he added.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens died with three other diplomats on Tuesday night after hundreds of protesters, angered by an alleged U.S.-made movie that they say insults Prophet Mohammed, broke into and set ablaze the U.S. consulate building.
