Libyan Ambassador Meets With Secretary Clinton

Libyan Ambassador to the U.S. Ali Suleiman Aujali meets with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton following the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed.

In the wake of the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, the Libyan ambassador to the United States, Ali Suleiman Aujali, met with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the State Department (above).

"This was an attack by a small and savage group -- not the people or government of Libya," Clinton said in a statement. "The friendship between our countries, born out of shared struggle, will not be another casualty of this attack. A free and stable Libya is still in America's interest and security, and we will not turn our back on that, nor will we rest until those responsible for these attacks are found and brought to justice."
