Flags flown at half-staff to honor Americans lost in Libya

SAN DIEGO -- Flags were at half-staff at Petco Park before Friday's Padres game against the Rockies as Major League Baseball paid tribute to the four Americans slain earlier this week in Libya.

The Padres had a moment of silence to honor those slain before their 4-3 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Flags were flown at half-staff at all Major League ballparks on Friday.

President Barack Obama ordered all flags on government buildings to half staff to honor of those who were killed, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens.

The order applies to all U.S. military posts, diplomatic sites abroad and ships at sea, and will remain in force until sunset on September 16.
