US Embassy apologises for motorist's actions, no comment on whether he is member of staff

The US embassy has refused to confirm or deny whether an American man seen verbally assaulting a Maltese driver in an online video is a member of staff.

The unidentified US citizen’s road rage became the subject of shock and ridicule after a video of the event went viral on social media last weekend.

Asked whether the man was a US diplomat or involved in any way with the embassy, the US officials refused to comment but later apologised for his actions.

The American left his car and launched a torrent of insults at a motorist as both refused to give way in a narrow street in Sliema. The American eventually reversed his vehicle as the tailback behind the Maltese driver's car grew.
