Libya's president says the attack that resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a “pre-planned attack of terrorism.”
In a Wednesday interview with the U.S.-based “NBC News,” President Mohammed el-Magarief said the attack had nothing to do with protests against an anti-Islam film.
“It was launched with a high degree of accuracy which means that the perpetrators must have had some kind of exercise on how to hit, how to launch this act.”
The incident took place as thousands of Muslims were protesting against a video produced by an anti-Muslim filmmaker in the United States. VoA.
The Obama Administration has downplayed the role of terrorism in the attack, after denying it initially. It continues to apologize for the video made by a Coptic Egyptian refugee in California.
