Algerian TV showed photographs purported to be of a number of hostages who were killed after Algerian military gunships destroyed a number of vehicles they were being transported in by their hostage takers during the hostage crisis at the natural gas plant in In Amenas, Algeria.
Officially, Algerian authorities have claimed that 107 foreigners and 680 Algerians survived, while 23 hostages and 32 hostage-takers from an Al-Qaeda linked militant group were reported killed. However, a number of foreign nationals including British and Japanese citizens remain unaccounted for.
I've also included an Algerian TV interview in English with some of the survivors who recounted their experiences during the crisis.
