Algeria: Prime Minister confirms 37 foreign workers died in siege by islamists


A total of 37 foreign workers died in a hostage crisis at an Algerian desert gas plant and seven are still missing, Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal said on Monday.

Mr Sellal also told a news conference that a Canadian had co-ordinated the attack by Islamists on the site near the Libyan border.

“A Canadian was among the militants. He was co-ordinating the attack,” Mr Sellal said, adding that the raiders had threatened to blow up the gas installation.

Earlier, an Algerian security source told Reuters that documents found on the bodies of two militants had identified them as Canadians, as special forces scoured the plant following Saturday’s bloody end to the crisis.
