NotesNews: "Downing Street is no stranger to crisis management. But even advisers used to dealing with emergencies were dizzied by the pace at which the Algeria crisis unfolded. "It was the most intense time I've ever experienced," said one. "Calls were coming in from everywhere." It was on Wednesday afternoon that the Prime Minister had his first conversation with his Algerian counterpart, Abdelmalek Sellal. No 10 set up the call after reports emerged that hostages had been taken at an Algerian gas facility. The In Amenas installation was home to more than 100 foreign workers, including dozens of Britons. Mr Cameron was told that the terrorist raid had begun early that morning. Terrorists had first attacked two buses heading to the Amenas airfield. They then attacked the residential compound before reaching the gas facility. Two hostages were killed in the attack on the buses, including one Briton. The Prime Minister sanctioned emergency procedures in London and Britain's Embassy in Algiers. ....
