Algeria scours Sahara for 5 missing foreigners
ALGIERS, Algeria – Algerian forces scoured the Sahara Desert on Tuesday, searching for five foreign energy workers who vanished during a chaotic four-day battle with hostage-taking Islamist militants.
One official says the men may have fled the sprawling complex during the fighting and gotten lost.
The four-day confrontation that began when al-Qaida-affiliated militants stormed the remote desert natural gas complex and took hostages early Wednesday, was punctuated by exploding cars, attacks from helicopters and a final assault by Algerian special forces.
