***UPDATE 2: PHOTO OF US AMBASSADOR’S BODY BEING HELPED BY LIBYANS?***

***CONTENT WARNING BELOW: GRAPHIC IMAGE***

This is horrible news:

REUTERS – The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.

Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year’s uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.

The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.

“The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them,” the official in Benghazi told Reuters.

I saw on Fox News while writing this that the deaths have been confirmed by the Obama administration.

UPDATE: This is disgusting. The US Ambassador’s corpse dragged through the streets of Benghazi by these Islamic thugs:

UPDATE2: AFP is reporting that this is a photo of the US Ambassador being HELPED by Libyans, not being dragged through the streets as we previously reported:

Given that I don’t speak Arabic and the fact that Hillary Clinton said they were carrying him to the hospital in her statement a few moments ago, I accept this to be the case instead.
