In the wake of the brutal terrorist attack on the gas field in Algeria, world leaders are expressing their reactions at the end of a four-day siege that claimed the lives of people from eight countries.

The plant was a joint–venture operated by British firm BP, Statoil of Norway and Sonatrach of Algeria. 

Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal said that Algerian special forces moved in  before militants carried out their plan to detonate explosives at the facility. "If it exploded, it could have killed and destroyed anything within 5 kilometers or further," Sallal said.

In an interview with American Press today, Prime Minister David Cameron said, "The threat has grown particularly in Africa." He continued, "This is a global threat, and it will require a global response."
