Just one day after an attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya left the American ambassador dead, U.S. officials are uncovering evidence that these attacks may be the work of militants, according to CBS News.
After the release of a film portraying the prophet Mohammed in a negative light, protests broke out in the city of Benghazi in Libya Tuesday, leaving four Americans dead, including ambassador Chris Stevens. While it was initially believed that the attack on the U.S. embassy was the work of an out-of-control crowd, evidence now shows that the attack may have been premeditated, according to the CBS News Report.
The Obama administration has taken a hard stand on the attack, vowing that "justice will be done." According to CNN, the U.S. has moved warships toward the coast of Libya and is preparing to track those suspected of the attack using drones.
It is not believed that the Libyan government was involved.
