U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement today regarding the acts of violence committed against American diplomatic compounds in Libya and Egypt. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
"The attacks on Americans in Libya and Egypt were senseless and needless acts of violence. The United States has rightly condemned these hostile acts, for which there is no possible justification. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the four American public servants, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, whose lives were lost as a result of these attacks. The United States must move swiftly to bring the perpetrators to justice."
