A news conference is being held in Massachussets with the family of one of the victims killed n the U.S. Consulate attack in Libya on Wednseday.
Glen Doherty was reportedly an ex-Navy Seal who was on security duty at the consulate, and was protecting the ambassador.
NBC News reports that Anti-American violence is spreading throughout the middle east in response to a film that protestors call "blasphemous" to Islam.
The crowd initially stormed the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, killing a U.S. Ambassador there.
Lawmakers are condemning the violence and the video that sparked the outrage, in a hope to calm protestors before more people are injured or killed.
