The US secretary of state has blamed a "small and savage group" for the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in which four Americans were killed.

Speaking in Washington, Hillary Clinton said that it was not the people or government of Libya that should be held responsible and that "Libyans stood and fought to defend our post".

Meanwhile, President Obama has ordered a tightening of security at US diplomatic posts around the globe.
