    Uncertainty surrounds the fate of those at the In Almenas gas plant in Algeria, following a military operation to free hundreds of workers held hostage by militants.

    Algerian forces gained control of part of the facility and some hostages were released.

    There are also unverifiable reports that dozens of people have been killed and injured, while many others have managed to escape.
