Algeria's special forces stormed a natural gas complex in the middle of the Sahara desert on Saturday in a "final assault" aimed at ending a four-day-old hostage crisis, the state news agency reported. It said 11 militants and seven hostages were killed.
The report, quoting a security source, didn't say whether any hostages or militants remained alive, and it didn't give the nationalities of the dead. It said the army was forced to intervene after a fire broke out in the plant.

Freakin’ AP cover for that loser Obama again by blaming the Algerian government that ostensibly didn’t negotiate. Of course AP offers no proof, but he takes the heat off of Obama.
Face it America is a 90 pound weakling... just the way Obama likes it. There is NO American leadership. People just kill Americans now because they know Obama is a sissy.
“It just seems we my not know what the heck really happened here,”
We don’t even know what happened at Sandy Hook let alone what happens in Algeria.
so when did we start relying on 3rd world govs for anything?
Why didn’t we send in our special forces guys....you know — our great warrior with superior weapons and training?
RIP for the hostages.
Now that it is over the preezie can par-tay.
