The Islamist militants who attacked the natural gas plant included two Canadians and a team of explosives experts who had memorized the layout of the sprawling complex and were ready to blow the place sky-high, Algeria's prime minister said Monday. Algeria detailed a grim toll from the attack, saying at least 38 hostages and 29 militants died in four days of mayhem. (AP Photo/Anis Belghoul)
