Washington, D.C. — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (PA-03) issued the following statement on the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya and the U.S. Embassy in Egypt:

“I want to extend my sincere condolences to the families and friends of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and the two other victims of this heinous attack who have yet to be identified.
