Libyan Fanatics Claim Provocation -

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, has been murdered, reportedly by a fringe group of militant Salafi-style religious extremists there, and Gainesville Florida Pastor Terry Jones is being blamed for promoting an anti-Moslem movie which is alleged to have caused this death as a violent reaction to film clips from it which were posted on the Internet.

The security level at U.S. diplomatic posts worldwide has been raised in response to these developments.
