Astros honor those lost in consulate attacks
HOUSTON -- The flags beyond center field at Minute Maid Park were flown at half-staff on Friday to honor the Americans who were killed in Tuesday's U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya.

The bodies of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods returned to American soil on Friday after they were killed in a terrorist attack on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States.

"The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack," President Barack Obama said in a statement in the White House Rose Garden. "Make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people."
