BEIJING, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- The killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya has drawn from across the world condolences to the Americans and condemnation of violence against diplomatic missions.
U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday denounced the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate building in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi, vowing to bring the killers of Christopher Stevens and other three 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.
The four Americans were killed when hundreds of protesters, angered by an alleged U.S.-made movie that insults Prophet Mohammed, stormed and set ablaze the U.S. consulate building on Tuesday night.
Stevens, who was on a short trip to Benghazi, died from suffocation as a result of smoke inhalation, the pan-Arab Al-Jazeera TV reported Wednesday.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council also condemned the deadly attack "in the strongest terms."
