The Islamist militants who attacked a natural-gas plant in the Sahara included two Canadians and a team of explosives experts who had memorized the layout of the sprawling complex and were ready to blow the place sky-high, Algeria's prime minister said Monday.
The Islamist terrorists who attacked a natural gas plant in the Sahara included two Canadians and bombmakers who had memorized the layout of the sprawling complex and were ready to blow the place sky-high, Algeria's prime minister said Monday.
One American worker at a natural gas complex in Algeria has been found dead, U.S. officials said Friday as the Obama administration sought to secure the release of Americans still being held by militants on the third day of the hostage standoff in the Sahara.
Mr. Sellal also indicated that this operation was not — as the Islamists had claimed — an immediate reaction to France's recent military intervention against Islamists in neighboring Mali, since the captured militants said it took two months of planning.
"He gave the order for all the foreigners to be killed, so there was a mass execution, many hostages were killed by a bullet to the head," he said.
