Hostages Killed at BP Natural Gas Facility in Algeria

BPhostagesAlgeria

Many of the hostages who were seized yesterday at the BP natural gas facility in Algeria have been killed, according to reports.

Hostages from America, France, and Japan were among those taken, but there is no word on which ones were killed.

The killing apparently took place during a shootout, while militants were trying to move the hostages from one part of the facility to another and were subsequently taking heavy fire from Algerian forces.

There is no clear indication of whether American hostages are still alive, only news that militants have pledged to start killing off the remaining hostages if the Algerian Army closes in.
