(FOX NEWS) DEVELOPING: ALGIERS, Algeria — Algeria’s state news agency says that special forces have completed their operation to free hostages from a remote desert natural gas complex.

The report gave no new toll for the number of dead among either the hostages or the kidnappers, who were described as a “multinational terrorist” group.

Earlier Algerian TV had said that four foreign workers, two Britons and two Filipinos, died in the operation.
