(HARTFORD, Conn.) -- Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy is joining President Obama in condemning the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed.
"We know that the work to build nations and strengthen our global relationships is difficult and dangerous, and we are cognizant of just how many Americans undertake these efforts in embassies and consulates across the world," Malloy said in a statement Wednesday. "We stand with the President and the rest of the country in condemning the perpetrators of this attack."
Stevens, 52, died Tuesday night as 20 gun-wielding attackers descended on the U.S. consulate, firing automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades, Libya officials said.
