Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah G├╝len has strongly condemned at attack on US Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Libyan ambassador, and expressed deep condolences to the American people.

"I have learned with sadness about the attack on the US Consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi which resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, consulate personnel and several others.

I strongly condemn this heinous attack which targeted Ambassador Stevens who was representing his country in Libya and thus was a guest of Libyan government and people.

On this sad occasion I reiterate my condemnation of all forms of terror regardless of its perpetrators and the purposes for which it is carried out.

I sent my sincere condolences to those who lost loved ones in the tragedy, to the United States Government, to American people and especially to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton under whom the ambassador and his staff have been serving.

I share their pain in my heart and pray for the fast recovery of those who were injured."
