quote: " At least five Britons have been taken hostage - and one UK national killed - in a terrorist attack at a gas field in Algeria, according to Sky sources.
An Islamist militant group has claimed to have kidnapped up to 41 foreign nationals - including seven Americans and an Irishman - in a dawn raid on the gas facility part-operated by BP, Algerian state oil company Sonatrach, and Norway's Statoil in Algeria.
It also claimed to have repelled an attempt by Algerian soldiers to enter the facility, forcing them to retreat after an exchange of gunfire.
The group is said to be demanding the release of 100 Islamists held in Algeria, in exchange for those being held at the gas field"
I can just feel the SAS and American special forces putting on their boots for this one....I have a fascination with the special forces, (Skynews live if you have it)
