An attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya led to the death of an ambassador and three other Americans.

Protestors, who were instigated by a YouTube trailer of an anti-Muslim movie, took to the streets Tuesday in a violent display of anger. Images of protestors displayed showed protestors ripping through an American flag have perforated nearly every media outlets.

According to The New York Times,  the movie “Innocence of Muslims” has been heavily supported by Gainesville pastor Terry Jones, who is  infamously known for his views on Islam.

WUFT spoke with Jones on Wednesday, who said he was not as involved in the movie as some may believe.
