There will be "no place to hide" for the Islamist
gunmen who have taken a number of hostages in Algeria, US defence
Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday.
In a speech in London, Panetta said the US government was "working around the clock to ensure the safe return of our citizens." It was in close consultation with the Algerian government.
"Terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge. Not in Algeria, not in North Africa, not anywhere," he said. "Those who would wantonly attack our country and our people will have no place to hide."
