In response to the murder of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, a team of Marines has been deployed to Libya to secure the consulate.
On Tuesday, a mob angered by an anti-Islam film attacked Stevens as he was attempting to evacuate the consulate, according to the Pentagon Channel. He was killed, along with three American embassy staffers.
CBS News reports the last time a U.S. ambassador was killed in the line of duty was 1979.
