U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, along with three other Americans, were killed in a rocket attack outside the city of Benghazi in Libya late last night, September 11.
Now, Israeli filmmaker Sam Bacile has gone into hiding after his film, Innocence of Muslims, was blamed as a possible cause of the horrific attacks.
The AP reports:
An Israeli filmmaker based in California went into hiding Tuesday after his movie attacking Islam's prophet Muhammad sparked angry assaults by ultra-conservative Muslims on U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya.
Speaking by phone from an undisclosed location, writer and director Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion.
Protesters angered over Bacile's film opened fire on and burned down the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing an American diplomat on Tuesday. In Egypt, protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner.
