Libyans angry over film set fire to US consulate

TRIPOLI, Libya — A Libyan Interior Ministry official says armed men have stormed the US consulate in east Libya’s Benghazi and set it ablaze after a protest against a video deemed insulting to Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, which was reportedly produced in America.

Witnesses say Tuesday’s attack left much of the consulate burned. It came hours after ultraconservative Islamist demonstrators in Egypt climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest the film.

Wanis al-Sharef, an interior ministry official in Benghazi, says the attackers stormed the consulate after firing in the air. He says nobody was in the consulate at the time.
