Reuters, the Associated Press and other media outlets are reporting that Libyan officials say Ambassador Chris Stevens and three staffers died Tuesday after the violent attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
The officials say Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed Tuesday night when he and a group of embassy employees went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff. The protesters were firing gunshots and rocket propelled grenades.
