After an Islamist militant group attacked an oil field partially owned BP. According to the Algerian government, the heavily armed militants used three vehicles, and launched an attack in the early morning hours – apparently killing three people in the process. The group is affiliated with al-Qaeda, and claims the attack is revenge for the ongoing bombing of suspected militants in Mali by French forces over the last week.

Tragically, this is what Chalmers Johnson would refer to as “blowback” – the consequence of decades of meddling in internal politics in the region, and extracting natural resources. Let’s hope for the safety of the hostages.
