CAIRO (AP) - A witness says U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens was still breathing as people pulled him from a room where he was found after this week's attack on the American Consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi.

Fahd al-Bakoush says he was present when a crowd pulled Stevens out of the room inside the consulate where someone stumbled across him, thinking he was dead. No one knew who he was.

Al-Bakoush told AP on Monday that Stevens was breathing, though his face was blackened and he seemed paralyzed. Al-Bakoush says the crowd carried Stevens to a private car to drive him to a hospital, since there was no ambulance.

Three other Americans died in the Tuesday attack, part of a wave of unrest over an anti-Islam film.
