The four-day hostage standoff in Algeria reportedly came to a bloody end Saturday when the country’s special forces stormed the gas plant and killed 11 militants, but not before they allegedly executed seven hostages, the state news agency reported.
U.S. officials have not confirmed to Fox News that any hostages were executed at the remote desert gas plant Saturday.
However, Britain’s defense minister says it appears the hostage situation in Algeria has come to an end and resulted in further loss of life.
