Algeria: 37 foreign hostages killed in standoff


ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) -- Algeria's prime minister says 37 foreign hostages were killed during the four-day-long standoff at a natural gas plant, and that at least one Canadian was among the Islamist militants who took hundreds hostage.


A Nederland family is waiting to learn the fate of a loved one who was working at the natural gas plant when the militants began their siege.


Abdelmalek Sellal said Monday kidnappers came from Egypt, Canada, Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Tunisia.


Algerian forces stormed the site killing 32 militants and gained control on Saturday.
