The attack was triggered apparently by a US movie that depicts their Prophet. No name of a film has been given. It appears that Muslims will riot without substantial evidence. Even Coptic Christians joined in the riot and destruction of the U.S. flag flown at the U.S. Embassy.

The German Embassy was also attacked according to Reuters.

Please pray as Coptic Christians are being blamed for financing said film.

Lord have mercy on us and save us.

I do not think that this could have happened without the cooperation of the government.

EDIT: I am editing my comment above because it is not appropriate for the Prayer Forum and add my own "Lord have mercy." Carl Kraeff
 You are being warned for 14 days for posting what is clearly not prayer, on in the prayer board. 

While you did go back & cross it out, it is important to know there are consequences for our actions.

Now the U.S. Embassy in Libya has been attacked with four Americans killed. ... newsbreaking.

Please pray as this film by an Israeli has generated a storm of protest against Americans.

Most Holy Theotokos save us.

I just watched a few minutes of the trailer online (gotta see what the big deal is, I guess), and I have to say, with no joking whatsoever, I don't think Coptic Christians would produce something this terrible. Even if we just look at the production values, it's not even anywhere near as good as the saints' movies that are often made in Egypt, which are themselves very low-budget affairs. A recent one I watched on St. Moses the Ethiopian even had a non-Ethiopian playing him in black-face and it was STILL much, much better than the trashy film that has for some reason cost people completely unconnected with it their lives, and will no doubt cost many more as "President" Morsi continues to do nothing to fulfill his campaign promise to be a president for all Egyptians. Lord have mercy! Only the Lord can protect and save our Christian brothers and sisters in Egypt (or anyone else anywhere in the world, as with the Americans killed in Libya; may the Lord repose their souls). May He keep them safe from all violence and hatred that is gathering against them for unjust reasons, and show their attackers the errors of their ways.
 14 day warning for posting non-prayer in the prayer Board.  Of you would like to appeal this decision you can PM me directly.

Lord Jesus Christ have mercy and save us.

Send Thy cooling rains to quench our heated passions.

O Lady, thou art the calm and haven of those stormbound in the sea of sins. Wherefore, tossed by the surging waves of diverse passions, I flee to thy haven. (Theotokion of the Canon to the Guardian Angel)

Most Holy Theotokos, save us.

O holy Angel, my Guardian, intercede in my behalf.

[reference: "Canon to the Guardian Angel," A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians, HTM, Boston, MA 2000, p. 304]
