Citizens lined the streets in Massachusetts on Wednesday to honor a former Navy SEAL killed in Libya.

Funeral services were held for Glen Doherty.

Flags lined the streets as a hearse carrying his body traveled to a church in his hometown of Winchester.

42-year-old Doherty was one of four Americans who died on September 11th in an attack on a US consulate. 

The attack also killed US Ambassador to Libya, John Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith, an information management officer. 

According to the Libyan Parliament, several people have been arrested in connection with the attack.
