Dodgers fly flag at half-staff to honor terrorist victims
LOS ANGELES -- The American flag will be flown at half-staff at Dodger Stadium this weekend in memory of the four State Department personnel killed in a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Libya late Tuesday.

Commissioner Bud Selig requested all clubs lower the flag in support of the president's proclamation to honor the slain Americans -- U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department official Sean Smith and security personnel Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Their bodies were returned to the United States on Friday.

The presidential order applies to all U.S. military posts, diplomatic sites abroad and ships at sea, and will remain in force until sunset on Sunday. The order is not binding on private businesses, but Selig took the action to demonstrate the game's support of the president's request.
