Held Hostage

On January 16, 2013, al-Qaeda terrorists took control of a giant gas facility in Algeria in a siege that lasted four days and led to the deaths of 37 expatriate workers. This show tells in forensic detail and, for the first time, the story of the siege and investigates the circumstances of the attack: Who were the people behind it, why did they attack, and how were they able to pull it off?

Fascinating. Entertaining.
