An Algerian security official says bomb squads scouring a gas plant where radical Islamists took dozens of foreign workers hostage have found 25 more bodies.

 

The state of some of the bodies discovered Sunday, a day after a bloody raid ended a four-day siege at the plant in the Sahara desert, is making it difficult to tell whether the dead were hostages or the attackers, the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.

Algerian authorities said on Saturday that 23 hostages and 32 captors were known to have died but that those figures were expected to rise.

US wants to know how Algerian attack unfolded

 

The White House says it will work with the Algerian government to understand how events unfolded in the terrorist attack on a natural gas complex in the Sahara desert.

 

An adviser to President Barack Obama says the attack is a reminder of the threat from terrorists who “will use civilians to try and advance their twisted and sick agenda.”

 

Obama aide David Plouffe says U.S. officials will be in touch with the Algerian government to get a “full understanding” of what happened.

 

Plouffe spoke on CBS’ “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday.”
