Al-Jazeera reports of 35 hostages killed and 15 of the hostage takers dead after helicopter attack as they tried to move the hostages from one site to another.

 

1 Briton was killed overnight and there are a number of Scots in the group taken. 20 Algerian workers rumoured to have escaped.

Jack Straw was on this morning chipping in. Apparently 'Algeria had the worst experience of all the colonies, certainly the French speaking colonies and they didn't experience as many benefits as other 'European' colonies'.

 

Yes, that's what he said, and for this reason the Algerians are reluctant to invite help from France or any other colonial power.

 

How the f*ck did this dimwit ever get to such high office?

The fella from Belfast says he only survived as the jeep he was being moved in was the only one of 5 not blown up by the Algerian forces, all the hostages had their mouths taped and explosives hung round their necks.

 

On the face of it the Algerian forces do seem to have been a little "gung ho" about this. Doesn't look like the fate of the hostages even entered their radar.
