NHK - FBI probing possible terrorist links

NHK World News ---- Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai Description -- The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a probe into the possible involvement of international terrorist groups, such as Al Qaeda, in Tuesday's attack on a US mission in Libya. US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed when the US Consulate in Benghazi was stormed by an armed group, as protests spread across the Middle East over a US film. They say the film insults the Prophet Muhammad. A senior US government official said on Wednesday that the armed group started shooting at the consulate at around 10:00 PM Tuesday local time. The official said the building went up in flames, and the attack continued for more than 4 hours. The official added that all US nationals in Benghazi have been evacuated to Libya's capital Tripoli on a chartered aircraft. The US plans to send the Marine Corps' anti-terrorist unit in Europe to Tripoli to increase security at the US embassy there. Some have raised the possibility that the attack was carried out by terrorists, as it fell on the same date as the September 11th terrorist attacks in the US in 2001. The official described Tuesday's attack as elaborate, and said the FBI and local investigative authorities have begun looking into possible terrorist involvement.
