City College’s American flag is being flown at half-staff through Sept. 16 at sunset to honor those killed in the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

The attacks left four Americans dead, including the U.S. Ambassador for Libya, John Christopher Stevens, and three others in an act that U.S.officials are saying may be linked to extremists inspired by al-Qaeda, according to reports from the Washington Post.

Interim Public Information Officer for City College Crystal Lee said that this action is “effective immediately in accordance with a Presidential Proclamation issued from the White House.”

A video of President Obama’s full response to the Libya attacks is available here.
