Algeria crisis: Captors and hostages die in assault
A four-day siege at a gas facility in the Sahara desert has ended, with militants and some hostages killed.
Seven hostages were killed by their captors during a final raid by Algerian troops - at least 23 hostages and 32 hostage-takers died in the four-day stand-off, Algerian officials say.
Five Britons are feared dead or missing - five Norwegians are unaccounted for.
