Three Americans were killed in the hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant last week, a senior administration official said Monday. Previously, one American was known to have been killed.
Earlier in the day, the prime minister of Algeria said at least 37 hostages from multiple countries had died in the terrorist seizure.
Algerian special forces stormed the complex twice -- once Thursday and then again Saturday -- to free hostages held by Islamist militants for four days. The government said it did so because the militants were planning to blow up the installation and flee to neighboring Mali with hostages.
