UNITED NATIONS—A number of Libyan security guards were killed and wounded trying to defend US ambassador Chris Stevens during the attack in Benghazi in which the US diplomat died, a Libyan UN envoy said Wednesday.

Ibrahim Dabbashi, Libya’s deputy UN ambassador, told reporters that up to 10 Libyan security personnel were killed and wounded in the attack on Tuesday. “Some of them have been killed at the start of the attack,” he said.
