Islamist militants took dozens of foreign workers hostage in a siege that ended Saturday when Algerian forces stormed the facility. The Algerian government says all 32 militants were killed and that the number of hostages killed stands at 23. One American is known dead.
An adviser to President Obama says the attack is a reminder of the threat from terrorists who “will use civilians to try and advance their twisted and sick agenda.”
