Libya Makes Arrests in Ambassador Killing
ibyan authorities say they have made arrests in association with the killing of U.S. ambassador to Libya during a siege on an American consulate, as waves of anti-American protests against a film mocking Islam continued sweeping the Middle East and Southeast Asia Thursday.
Libyan officials said they were gathering evidence about Tuesday’s attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three of his staff members, but would not give further details.
The breakthrough in Libya comes as hundreds stormed the grounds of the U.S. embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a. The mob torched a number of diplomatic vehicles Thursday as security guards used water cannons and warning shots in a bid to drive them out of the heavily fortified compound. A number of people were reported injured.
