According to Rosbalt, a crowd of Islamists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 12th at night.

The area around the embassy and surrounding streets were cordoned off.
The authors of the film showed Muslims and their religion in a highly unflattering light, which sparked a storm of indignation.

In Cairo, demonstrators removed the U.S. flag from the building of the embassy and replaced it with the flag traditionally used by al-Qaeda.
