6. Algeria siege: Hostage nations concerned over situation

Nations with hostages being held by militants at an Algerian gas plant have expressed concern at the ongoing siege.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the situation as "extremely difficult and dangerous".

While state media says hundreds of hostages have been freed at the remote In Amenas desert gas facility, about 30 foreigners are still unaccounted for.

State-run APS news agency says 12 Algerian and foreign workers have died since rescue efforts began on Thursday.
