US President Barack Obama said the killers of the American ambassador to Libya would be brought to justice, as the United States dispatched two destroyers and a unit of Marines to Libya.

Tuesday's assault on the Benghazi consulate followed a violent protest at the US embassy in Cairo over an anti-Islamic film made in the United States and reportedly promoted by a group of US-based Egyptian Copts.

It is believed that Chris Stevens died from smoke inhalation after becoming trapped in the compound when suspected Islamic militants fired on the building with rocket-propelled grenades and set it ablaze.
