Libya’s assembly chief says the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans and ten Libyans was pre-planned and "meticulously executed". "I don't want to talk about what happened in other countries but as for Libya, the operation was meticulously executed," Mohammed al-Megaryef said referring to the wave of protests across the world over a US-produced film insulting Islam. US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed on Tuesday when rocket-propelled grenades were fired on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city. The incident took place while a group of people held a demonstration against an anti-Islam movie produced in the United States. Demonstrations over the movie have been held across the Muslim world, with the protesters in some countries marching on the US embassies and torching the US flags. Demonstrators in Iran, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, and many other Muslim countries poured into the streets after Friday prayers to value their faith and condemn the movie that insulted Prophet Muhammad. The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the blasphemous movie has been produced by anti-Islam Israeli-American Sam Bacile. Washington has been evacuating most of its diplomatic staff from Libya to Germany following the attack. PG/JR
