ALGERIA | Terror in the gas plant Western Seven still at the mercy of terrorists who threaten to immolate


Safe Passage in Amenas where almost everything is data no official confirmation about the most massive kidnapping. Seven Western hostages are still in the hands of the kidnappers, according to AFP. "The continuing military operation to liberate" the authorities have stated laconically the Algerian official news agency APS. This means that Islamic terrorists have barricaded themselves in their remaining prisoners in a highly flammable area of the refinery andthreaten to immolate , flying passing facilities until last Wednesday that supplied 18% of the gas produced in the countryAll solutions are dangerous at this point of a kidnapping that has caused dozens of deaths, witnesses say they witnessed on Thursday the rescue attempt Algerian security forces, with the help of tanks and helicopters , which degenerated into the bombing of several vehicles SUV in which the jihadists sought to flee with their prey. "It was horrible, a real bloodbath. Dont know how many may have died, but many," declared one of the lucky ones released to Alain Berceaux special envoy to television gala BFMTV Amenas. The very French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius , last night confirmed the death of one of his countrymen, Yann Desjeux , during the attempt to free the hostages, and was pleased that while three other citizens present in the refinery Hexagon had saved his life . Instead, theFrench-born terrorist fallen , said nothing. Twelve dead center employees and 18 raptors "neutralized" , was last night the provisional report on the slaughter which established APS quoted Algerian security sources. Although the Algiers government is very reluctant to provide more details as to continue the siege of the criminals and the negotiations develop, Reuters on Thursday dared to venture that among the hostages are killedeight Algerians, two Japanese, two Britons and a Frenchman . The agency indicated Mauritanian ANI, meanwhile, that among the terrorists would be put out of the head of the command, Lamine Boucheneb (Taher alias), a prominent leader of the armed group Salafist 'Sons of the Sahara by the Islamic Justice', and would also members Algerians, Egyptians, Nigerians, Malians, Mauritanians and even a Canadian and a FrenchmanBut all are not officially confirmed details about the kidnapping and probably most massive, deadliest-ever recorded in the recent history of the Maghreb. When one considers that the plant normally work Amenas 2,000 people , it is an idea of the slaughter that could have caused these 'warriors of Allah' allegedly directed remotely by the sinister leader Mokhtar Belmojtar, a known terrorist and smuggler with a reputation for ruthless and fanatical dissident Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) which on Thursday ordered the seizure of the gas plant . Fortunately, hundreds of workers managed to hide and escape at different times of closure and others were released yesterday by Algerian special forces that prevented the escape of the kidnappers with their victims toward a remote part of desi√©rtico Sahel. In total, one hundred foreign and 573 Algerians would have escaped the worst But there are fears for the fate of those who are still in the hands of the fans, because they are considered ready to die fighting, which martyrs 'Holy War'. "The priority now is the safety of the hostages," a spokesman has said the State Department of the United States , many of whose citizens remain retained even Amenas. It is said that a U.S. aircraft would have reached the vicinity to cater wounded and transporting them to hospitals in Europe. There is also speculation that Washington could have sent specialists in hostage taking, whenever and offered two days ago the government of Algiers.

Negotiation

The only certainty, according to ANI, is that the terrorists have proposed releasing their captives in exchange for the release of two Islamists currently serving sentences in U.S. prisons: the Pakistani Aafia Siddiqui and the Egyptian Omar Abdel-Rahman . But the White House and announced that "does not negotiate with terrorists". So they have little chance of getting some revenue the assailants, who in recent days had demanded on the Algerian government to allow them to leave the country with their most valuable hostages (Westerners), or to release hundreds of Islamist prisoners in their prisons, or even to persuade the French Republic to end its military intervention in Mali. The 'operation Serval' battle with France for a week to terrorist coalition that has gripped the entire north of its former colony had been placed as an excuse, at first, for making the central gas company. Thanks to the testimony of one of the captured criminals, which has been "harshly interrogated by the Algerian military" , we now know that the coup was planned two months ago , that the armed group coming from Libya and the initial idea was not to dig at the refinery, but to capture large group of foreigners and take them to the desert of Mali or Niger to demand a high ransom . Meanwhile, a spokesman for terrorists ANI has warned that this was only the first assault, but there will be more. "We knew for some time that the Algerian regime France would support its ally in the fight against Azawad (northern Mali, in the hands of the Islamists)," he said.
