Algerian troops have stormed the gas plant in the Sahara desert that had been taken over by Islamist terrorists, killing all the militants. However, while 792 hostages survived, 23 were killed during the four-day siege. The terrorists' capturing of the facility, which is operated by Statoil (STO), BP and Algeria's state oil company, highlights the vulnerability of the operations of multinational energy firms in the Sahara.
