US President Barack Obama on Wednesday said that while the US rejects all efforts to denigrate the beliefs of others, there is no justification for the type of violence that left four US diplomats dead in Libya a day earlier.

"Yesterday was already a painful day - 9/11," the president said at the White House, "then last night we learned news of this attack. As Americans we must never, never forget our freedom only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it... sometimes to lay down their lives for it."
