NBC's Ayman Mohyeldin in Benghazi answers reader questions about embassy attack

Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Benghazi, Libya, where officials in the region continue to maintain that last week's deadly attack on the U.S. consulate was a targeted, pre-planned assault, carried out by foreigners. Meanwhile, U.S. officials claim there is no evidence to support this claim.

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed when gunmen attacked the consulate and a "safe house" in Benghazi last Tuesday night.

NBC News’ Ayman Mohyeldin is in Benghazi reporting on the aftermath of the attacks. Who is responsible for the attack, what is fueling the continuing protests over the anti-Islam film making waves across the Middle East and what is the impact on U.S.-Libya relations?
