UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Libya's deputy U.N. ambassador says several Libyan security officers were killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and others were wounded.
Ibrahim Dabbashi told the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday that the attack, which killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three American diplomats, "in no way serves the interests of Libya" and "gravely damages the image of Islam."
He reiterated his governments condemnation of the attack and its determination to bring those responsible to justice.
Dabbashi told reporters afterwards that there were "maybe less than 10 victims from the security forces."
He said "some of them were killed at the start of the attack."
