The killings in Libya Tuesday of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi is said to have been sparked by anger over a video mocking the founding prophet of Islam, according to the New York Times.
A mob attacked the consulate Tuesday, and Stevens and three American staffers were killed in the attack. Sean Smith, an information management officer, and Stevens are the only two killed who have been named, pending relative notification, according to the State Department.
The Huffington Post reported this morning that the maker of the video, Sam Bacile, 56, of California, has gone into hiding. But Bacile maintained that "Islam is a cancer" and the intent of his film was a political statement condemning the religion.
