The death toll from the terror attack at the BP gas facility in Algeria, for which Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility, has risen to 81. The Algerian military found 25 more bodies, in such bad shape that they couldn’t tell if they were terrorists or foreign workers held as hostages. Plus, one of the freed hostages, a Romanian, has died.
The Algerians are searching the site for explosives because the terrorists had planned to blow up the entire plant.
Islamic extremists have attacked a BP natural gas site in Algeria and seized 41 European, Japanese, and American hostages. Seven of the hostages are believed to be American. Two foreigners were killed in the initial attack.
