Christopher Stevens, Ambassador to Libya Killed, to Be Honored at City Hall Today

San Francisco City Hall should be packed this afternoon with thousands of grieving locals who want to pay their respect to Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, who was savagely killed in an attack last month.

The 52-year-old Bay Area native died along with three other Americans in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Stevens, who was appointed to his post earlier this year, died from smoke inhalation following the grenade attack.

Today's 4:30 p.m. memorial is expected to draw many local dignitaries, including San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who will give opening remarks, according to Stevens' family.
