An Al Qaeda-linked group from Mali has taken total control over a gas field in Algeria, taking 41 hostages including seven Americans and killing two. The name of the group is Katibat Moulathamine, or the Masked Brigade and they contacted the Mauritanian media to inform them that their group had carried out the mission of the attack. The group said the attack was in revenge for Algeria’s support of France’s operation against Al Qaeda-linked Malian rebels groups far to the southeast. This is crazy. You never know what these kinds of people are going to do, I mean they took control of a GAS FIELD. I hope this doesn’t turn out badly. The U.S. embassy will surely be getting involved in this one. Drop down bottom for more.
