Algeria's foreign minister acknowledged Saturday that security forces made mistakes in a hostage crisis at a Saharan gas plant in which dozens of foreign workers were killed during Algerian military strikes.
The foreign ministers of Algeria and other North African nations met Wednesday to discuss how to confront terrorism in the vast desolate regions of the Sahara Desert.
Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci insisted that the protests that have infected the Arab world from the Middle East to North Africa will not destabilize his country.
"The domino effect is an invention on the part of the media, including that of Algeria which is very free. I don't think it applies to Algeria. Algeria is not Egypt or Tunisia," he told the Spanish daily newspaper El Pais.
