American hostages taken in Algeria

ALGIERS, Algeria In what could be the first spillover from France's intervention in Mali, Islamist militants attacked and occupied a natural gas complex partly operated by energy company BP in southern Algeria on Wednesday. Two foreigners were killed and dozens of others, including at least three Americans, were taken hostage.

A militant group has taken responsibility for this and claim its because of Frances operation against Malian rebels. They claim they are holding 41 hostages including 7 Americans. Algerian forces have the complex surrounded and claim there are about 20 hostages.

I hope no one else is killed in this unless its people in the militant group. I hope they get them.
