US embassies in seven countries are issuing warnings about anti-American protests and possible violence after a mob attack in Libya on Tuesday (September 11) left four Americans dead.
Christopher Stevens, the US Ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans were killed when a mob stormed the US Consulate and set it on fire.
According to reports by the Associated Press, experts believe the killings were a calculated attack planned by jihadist cells, not a result of mob violence about a controversial film on Muhammad.
US Embassies have issued warnings in Armenia, Burundi, Egypt, Kuwait, Sudan, Tunisia and Zambia.
In Egypt, the American Citizen Services offices were set to be closed today (September 13) due to possible demonstrations and the threat of violence. The Embassy characterises the situation as "fluid".
