Algeria mulls international force for hostages

Published: 01.17.13, 11:24 / Israel News

Algeria's government searched desperately Thursday for a way to end a desert standoff with Islamic militants who have taken dozens of foreigners hostage at a natural gas complex, turning to tribal leaders among Algerian Tuaregs and contemplating an international force.

The government was in talks throughout the night with the US and France over whether international forces could help against the militants, who have said 41 foreigners, including seven Americans, were being held after the assault on one of oil-rich Algeria's energy facilities. Two foreigners were killed. (AP)
