After Libya Killings, UNSC Urges "All Authorities" to Protect, UN Envoy Out

By Matthew Russell Lee

WASHINGTON DC, September 12 -- After the killing of US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other American diplomats in Benghazi, finger pointing began or picked up steam in Washington.

  President Barack Obama called his Afghan counterpart Hamid Kharzai. Meanwhile Pakistan issued a statement condemning the video that was being protested in Benghazi and Cairi, but not the killings.

  Up in New York, the UN Security Council on which Pakistan serves issued a press statement which called on "all authorities" to protect diplomatic premises. 

  Some including Inner City Press inevitably compared it to the Council's November 2011 statement after the UK embassy in Tehran was "overrun." That statement called on "Iranian authorities" to protect diplomats.

   The UN, mere hours after the killings, chose to confirm the departure of its envoy to Libya, Ian Martin. The timing seemed less than ideal. Watch this site, for report from Washington then from the UN.
