Held Hostage Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Fri, Dec 4, 2015 -- 6:00 AM

This documentary uses a very current, filmic approach to tell, from the point of view of witnesses,the dramatic events of January 2013 when Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists stormed a gas plant in the middle of the Algerian desert and took more than 800 workers hostage. After a four-day siege, Algerian special forces gained control of the facility. In the end, at least 37 foreign hostages and 29 militants were dead.
