US envoy killed in Libya 'feared being on Al-Qaeda's hit list': Report

New York , Mon, 24 Sep 2012 ANI

New York, Sept 24 (ANI): Slain American ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, feared he was on an Al-Qaeda hit list days before he was killed in the Libyan city of Benghazi, a report has claimed.

A controversial CNN report based on his personal journal also said the veteran diplomat also worried about increasing extremism in Libya.

A senior adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton blasted the network, saying it broke a pledge to Stevens' family by using material from the journal, which it said it found in an unsecured section of the US Consulate in Benghazi three days after the violence.

CNN, however, said the journal provided "newsworthy tips" that it independently confirmed in its report, that Stevens worried about growing al Qaeda presence in Libya and being on its hit list, the New York Post reports.

According to the report, State Department adviser Philippe Reines said the network's use of the information in Stevens' journal broke a promise to Stevens' relatives.

Reines described CNN's behavior as "disgusting" and "indefensible."

The new revelations emerge as the Obama administration was sending mixed messages over whether the violence was a planned terrorist attack or a spontaneous act of violence prompted by the anti-Islamic video "Innocence of Muslims." (ANI)
