Algeria: Death Toll Climbs Past 80 At Hostage Crisis Site

The death toll from the militant siege at the Tigantourine natural gas facility climbed past 80 Jan. 20 as Algerian forces searching the refinery for explosives found dozens more bodies, AP reported. British Prime Minister David Cameron said the responsibility for these deaths lies squarely with the militants who launched the attack. The ambiguous and violent events characterizing the hostage crisis have opened the government up to considerable foreign criticism at a time when Algeria is trying to expand investment in its energy sector.
