As horrible news broke this morning about the death of Christopher Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya, at least four graphic photos purportedly showing his death during the savage embassy attack began circulating. The man in the photos appears to be the ambassador, but some reports indicate Stevens died in the hospital.

Twitchy is not including these photos in our coverage.


AFP confirms one of the pics is legitimate. Warning: The piece linked in the following tweet contains a graphic photo of Ambassador Christopher Stevens after the attack.

The photographer said it is not known whether Stevens was alive or dead when the photo was taken.
