Message of condolences from President Barroso to Mr Barack Obama, President of the United States of America, following the attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi
I was saddened and shocked to learn the news of the atrocious attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that has caused the death of four U.S. civil servants, including the American Ambassador to Libya. I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences through you to the family and friends of the victims. There is no justification whatsoever for the loss of lives of innocent people and we are ready to work closely with the Libyan and American Authorities to bring those responsible for this appalling attack to Justice.
