ATLANTA -- On the day the bodies of four Americans killed in Libya were returned to the United States, the flag at Turner Field flew at half-staff in their honor.

The Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed in the widening anti-Western protests, which began this week in Egypt and have spread across the Middle East.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said the killings in Libya were the latest example of people not valuing the lives of other humans.

"It's sad that the world is in that state," Gonzalez said. "People all over the world, even here in the United States, there are some acts that are mind boggling. It's just sad."

The flag was flown at half-staff Friday at ballparks around Major League Baseball.
