Al Qaeda's affiliate in North Africa urged Muslims in the region to kill U.S. government representatives in response to an online film that mocks Islam's holy prophet, a statement posted to a militant website said Tuesday. Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb called last week's death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens after an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi a "gift."
