Vatican condemns killing of U.S. Ambassador in Libya

Vatican expresses hope that, despite tragedy, the international community will continue its commitment to peace in the Middle East
Vatican City
The B.C. Catholic has a story from Catholic News Agency about the Vatican's views on the violent attack in Libya by Muslim extremists that resulted in the death of a U.S. diplomat and three other Americans:
The Vatican voiced its “firmest possible condemnation” of the fatal attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans, including the ambassador to the country.
“Nothing, in fact, can justify the activity of terrorist organizations and homicidal violence,” read the statement issued by Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, Sept. 13.
“Along with our sadness, mourning, and prayers for the victims, we again express the hope that, despite this latest tragedy, the international community may discover the most favourable ways to continue its commitment in favour of peace in Libya and the entire Middle East.”
