Baku-APA. The European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Wednesday condemned "in the strongest possible terms" the killing of U.S. consulate officials in Libya, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

"I am deeply shocked by the despicable attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which killed four U.S. public servants, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens," she said.

Ashton expressed sympathy for the families of the victims and the U.S. authorities and urged Libya to "take all necessary measures without delay" to protect the lives of all diplomats and foreign staff working in the country.

The Libyan authorities should "work tirelessly to bring those responsible for these killings to justice," she added.

Hundreds of protesters, angered by an U.S.-made movie that allegedly insults prophet Mohammed, broke into the U.S. consulate building in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday night.

The U.S. ambassador, who was on a short trip to Benghazi, died from suffocation as a result of smoke inhalation as protestors set fire. Three staffers were also killed during the fierce clashes.
