WASHINGTON, DC - Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), Chairwoman of the State and Foreign Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the attacks in Libya and Egypt:

“I strongly condemn the attacks that occurred yesterday on American diplomatic facilities in Libya and Egypt. My deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who were lost and injured.

“The Government of Libya should immediately bring to justice the individuals who are responsible for this vicious attack. The Government of Egypt should condemn the events that occurred at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo yesterday and ensure that proper security is in place. All foreign governments must fulfill their responsibilities to keep our diplomats safe and secure.
