ALGERIAN HOSTAGE CRISIS


ALGERIAN HOSTAGE CRISIS

(DAILY EARTH REPORT FROM 2013)

BY ALAN CLARK

In 2013, when a rogue Al Qaeda splinter group seized a vital gas complex in Algeria in retaliation for that country’s support of French military action in Mali, it required a daring raid by Algerian commandos to liberate the plant. In the process, hostages from the U.S., Britain, France, and Japan were killed. Alan Clark illustrated the harrowing event for the Daily Earth.
