 A solemn homecoming today outside Washington D.C., the remains1 of four Americans killed in Libya will return to the U.S. today. President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were on hand for the ceremony at Joint2 Base Andrews. As NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. 

With somber3 music playing, guards carried the flag draped caskets of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information management officer Sean Smith and two former Navy Seals who were protecting the consulate4 in Benghazi, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. The Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid tribute to them, she also demanded that leaders in the region restored security after violence spread over what she called an awful internet video.
The people of Libya, Yemen and Tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob.
President Obama says the U.S. will stand fast against violence in these difficult days. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, Washington.
In Jerusalem, Israeli police fired tear gas at a crowd of Palestinians who joined Muslims in the Middle East, Africa and Asia to target U.S. embassies and those of their western allies who protest the anti-Muslim video that despaired Islam's prophet Muhammad. They scaled the walls of the US embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, and set fire to part of the German embassy. In Nigeria, soldiers reportedly clashed with youths following Friday's prayers. Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi called for restraint in Cairo, where police fought with protestors near the US embassy. A marine5 rapid response team arrived in Yemen's capital today as protests erupted at the US embassy there.
Speaking today to an annual gathering6 of religious conservatives in Washington D.C., Republican vice7 presidential nominee8 Paul Ryan covered a range of topics. NPR's Don Gonyea reports Ryan included an attack on White House handling of anti-American violence in the Muslim world that claimed the life of a U.S. ambassador.
Ryan opened by expressing condolences for the US lives loss before launching into this strong critic.
American foreign policy needs moral clarity and firmness of  purpose. Only by the confident exercise  of the American influence are evil and violence overcome.
Though the bulk of Ryan's speech was on other topics, repeating assertions that the president has failed economically. He also did something neither he nor Mitt9 Romney have done much of which is to deliver a lengthy10 criticism of the president on the issue of abortion11. Don Gonyea, NPR News, Washington.

Spain appears to be close to requesting financial help at a finance ministers meeting staying in Cyprus. Spanish delegation12 revealed it would propose a new set of economic changes by the end of the month.
Oil futures13 have risen to $100 a barrel for the first time since May as global unrest spread today. A senior trader at Swiss Bank UBS is on trial in London. Larry Miller14 reports he was described as a master fraudster that cost the bank millions.
Equity's trader Kweku Adoboli is accused of lying to UBS, inventing clients and fictitious15 deals and breaching16 bank rules by high risk gambling17. The 32-year-old from Ghana is the son of a diplomat18. His deals cost UBS 2.3 billion dollars and when the fraud was disclosed last year, 4.5 billion dollars were wiped from the value of the bank. The prosecutor19 claims he risked the very existance of the bank for his own benefit. That his system crashed like a car hitting a wall at high speed. She says the amount lost could have paid the salaries of 70,000 nurses or built six new hospitals. Adoboli denies the charges of fraud and false accounting20.

Twitter has handed over an Occupy Wall Street activist's Twitt to a New York criminal judge in a closely watched case over just how much access law enforcement should have to materials posted on social networks. The protester Malcolm Harris  was arrested with hundreds of others. Prosecutors21 say Harris' messages could show whether he disregarded police orders during that protest on the Brooklyn Bridge. Twitter says it was under pressure to comply with the subpoena22 or face steep fines.
