Obama vows justice for killed US envoy


US President Barack Obama has vowed to bring to justice those who carried out the attack that killed the US ambassador to Libya. Speaking in the Rose Garden at the White House, President Obama told reporters: “Justice will be done.” But he said the US consulate attack in Benghazi would not harm ties between the US and the new Libyan government. It has sparked a political row in the US, with rival Mitt Romney criticising Mr Obama before the president hit back. Ambassador J Christopher Stevens and three others died after gunmen stormed the consulate amid protests over an anti-Islamic film. Libyan officials have condemned the deadly violence. Meanwhile, protesters in Egypt have clashed with security forces after crowds returned to the US embassy in Cairo for a second evening of demonstrations over the film.]]>
