Libya: We gave US three-day warning of Benghazi attack
American diplomats were warned of possible violent unrest in Benghazi
three days before the killings of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and
three members of his team, Libyan security officials say.
The claim came as the country's interim President, Mohammed
el-Megarif, said his government had information that the attack on the
US consulate had been planned by an Islamist group with links to
al-Qa'ida and with foreigners taking part.
However, the American ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, insisted that
the killings had resulted from a demonstration against a film about the
Prophet Mohamed, replicating protests in Cairo, which had been
"hijacked" and got out of control.
