WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is condemning in the "strongest possible terms" an attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans, including the American ambassador.

Obama on Wednesday said the U.S. will work with the Libyan government to bring the perpetrators of the attack to justice. He says "no acts of terror" will shake America's resolve.

Obama said the U.S. rejects any efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but says there is "absolutely no justification" for violent attacks.
