Chris Stevens, the American ambassador to Libya and three embassy staff were killed in an attack on the Benghazi consulate that was stormed by gunmen blaming America for a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad. On Wednesday Libyan demonstrators gathered to condemn the deaths of the American embassy members.
The film made by an Israeli-American has been widely criticized in Egypt and Libya where hundreds of people gathered in protest.
A statement issued by Pakistan’s foreign ministry said that the film would provoke hatred and hurt the people of Pakistan.
