BENGHAZI, Libya, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked by militants Tuesday.
Secretary of State Clinton confirms that a State Dept. officer was killed in the uprising.
"We can confirm that our office in Benghazi, Libya, has been attacked by a group of militants. We are working with the Libyans now to secure the compound," Nuland said in a statement. "We condemn in strongest terms this attack on our diplomatic mission."
The Libyan Interior Ministry said one American was killed in the attack, Foreign Policy magazine reported.
The attack followed one Tuesday at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in which protesters tore down the American flag and replaced it with the flag of al-Qaida.
