Berceaux succeeded with other Algerian and foreigners to escape on January 17 from the Tiguentourine gas field in southeastern Algeria. The fate of some 30 foreigners hung in the balance today after Al-Qaeda-linked hostage-takers at a remote Algerian gas field demanded a prisoner swap and an end to French military action in Mali.
