ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: A memorial service is held in Libya Thursday for U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens who was killed in an attack in Benghazi last week, along with three other Americans. U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns spoke at the service. This is a hard moment for all of us. It is a moment of shared loss and it is a moment of shared hope and shared responsibility. We have lost four wonderful colleagues. We have lost a brilliant ambassador, full of courage and skill, and passionate determination to help Libyans, to help all of you, to realize the promise of your revolution to make a reality of a free Libya - of 'Libya al Hurra', " he said. The four Americans died when gunmen attacked the consulate and a safe house in the eastern city of Benghazi. The attackers were among a crowd protesting against a video made in California that mocks Islam and the Prophet Mohammad.
