American diplomatic facilities in Egypt and Libya have been attacked by crowds of Islamic militants. “The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other American diplomats were killed when suspected Libyan religious extremists stormed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi late Tuesday, according to Libyan Deputy Prime Minister Mustafa Abushagour,” reports the Wall Street Journal. At the same time, UPI reports: “Egyptian demonstrators Tuesday took down the U.S. flag from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest a short film they say demeans the Prophet Muhammad….Protesters climbed atop the embassy walls and got into the embassy’s garden, the report said, where they removed a U.S. flag and replaced it with one bearing the Islamic declaration of faith: ‘There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah.'” Please pray the families of those killed and wounded & for calm and order.
