Sen. Corker Condemns Deadly Attack on US Consulate in Libya

(WASHINGTON) -- U.S. Senator and member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bob Corker, has come out condemning the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that resulted in the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Senator Corker (R-Tenn.) slammed the violent act as being a senseless one, and extended his condolences to the families of the Americans killed.

"Nothing can justify this unprovoked attack by extremists on innocent Americans working tirelessly to help the Libyan people transition to democracy," Corker said in a statement issued Wednesday.
