The U.S. Ambassador and Special Envoy to Libya, Richard Norland, led his country’s diplomatic team to commemorate the victims of the terrorist attack against U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi on the 11th of September 2012, according to the American embassy.
Norland and the American embassy staff held a moment of silence to honor former ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty who were killed in the attack perpetrated by the Libyan terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia.
“As we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Benghazi attack, we remain committed to keeping their memory and legacy alive by continuing our shared work towards building a free and democratic Libya, and a better future for our Libyan friends,” Norland was quoted as saying by the embassy.
