    The Islamist gunmen holding out against security forces at a gas complex in Algeria still hold around 30 hostages, Algeria’s Information Minister Mohammed Said told state radio Friday evening.

    Twelve hostages have been killed at Algeria’s In Amenas gas complex since the start of a raid to free them by security forces, Algeria’s state APS news agency said Friday evening, quoting security sources.

    APS did not say how many of the dead were foreign nationals.

    Algerian officials told the agency earlier that around 100 of 132 foreign hostages had been freed and about 30 foreign workers remained unaccounted for.
