The Guardian features an Algerian news report showing the aftermath of the recent hostage situation at the Amenas gas field in eastern Algeria. Algerian special forces stormed the facility after deeming the demands of al Qaeda-affiliated militants "unreasonable, according to the [Algerian] prime minister," as reported by CNN. At least 37 hostages were killed and five are missing; at least 29 terrorists were killed, and three were captured.
