French company CIS Catering CEO Regis Arnoux addresses journalists on January 17, 2013 in Marseille as 150 of its Algerian employees were being held in a BP plant in Algeria where Al-Qaeda-linked militants claim to have taken 41 foreigners hostage. The hostage crisis at the In Amenas gas field has dragged Algeria into the Mali conflict despite its opposition to military intervention, with the kidnapping of foreigners coming on the heels of its decision to give logistical support to France.
