Footage shows Libyans tried to rescue U. S. ambassador
(AGI) Benghazi, 18 Sept. - A week after the death of U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens, an amateur video showed Libyans trying to rescue him at the U.S. Consulate. A young man appears to be shouting " Is there a doctor? Can anybody call a doctor?" while another one bends on the Ambassador to check his pulse.
Just before that the footage shows a group of people dragging the ambassador's body out of the room where he was found lying.
A man says "he is dead," while another states, "he is alive, alive. Let's take him out of here." Chants of "Hallah hu Akbar" can be hear in the background. The video, which appeared on the internet and a copy of which was obtained by Reuters in Benghazi, confirms reports that suggested the U.S. envoy died of asphyxiation after the building caught fire. The footage also sheds new light on the circumstances of the ambassador's death, apparently showing for the first time that some of the people who forced their way into the U.S. compound later tried to rescue Stevens after they found him lying alone, with no security detail, in one of the rooms in the building.
