US Am­bas­sador’s killing in Libya, a se­cu­rity breach


Me­dia re­ports have cited that the killings of the US am­bas­sador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the re­sult of a se­ri­ous and con­tin­u­ing se­cu­rity breach. US of­fi­cials are of the view that the at­tack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the coun­try only a short while and the de­tails of his visit to Beng­hazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

Added to this, it is re­ported that sen­si­tive doc­u­ments have gone miss­ing from the US Con­sulate in Beng­hazi and the sup­pos­edly se­cret lo­ca­tion of the “safe house” in the city, where the staff had re­treated, came un­der sus­tained mor­tar at­tack. Other such refuges across the coun­try are no longer deemed “safe”.
