LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister David Cameron will travel to Algeria in wake of the hostage crisis at a natural gas plant in the north African country.
The Jan. 16 attack on Algeria's Ain Amenas gas plant ignited a four-day siege with Algerian forces in which at least 37 hostages and 29 militants were killed. Three Britons are confirmed to have died in the attack, and another three are believed dead. An al-Qaida-affiliated group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Downing Street said Tuesday that Cameron will visit Algeria for bilateral meetings on Wednesday. The prime minister will later attend an international development conference in Liberia.
