A U.S. official was killed and at least one other American wounded as armed Libyan militiamen stormed the US consulate in Benghazi in eastern Libya.

“One American official was killed and another injured in the hand. The other staff members were evacuated and are safe and sound,” Libya’s deputy interior minister Wanis al-Sharif told AFP.

The identity of the consular worker who was shot is not known yet.

According to reports, the attack was over a You Tube video that insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said: “There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”

Armed men stormed the consulate compound, shooting at buildings and throwing handmade bombs, later setting a building on fire. Security forces returned fire but were overwhelmed.

Protests were held in front of the U.S. in Cairo, but no damage was caused there.
