Uncertainty about five missing Statoil employees in Algeria

Five Statoil employees are still missing following the hostage situation in Algeria. In total, nine people are missing and as much as 80 are thought to be killed in the hostage situation on the gas facility in In Amenas. 32 of these are hostage-takers.

The number of killed hostages and hostage-takers is nearing 80 following last week’s hostage situation in Algeria, Statoil announced on Sunday. Furthermore, Statoil informed that nine people are still missing of which five are Statoil employees.

“The situation is still unresolved for five of our employees. Yesterday I expressed deep and increasing concern for the five who are unaccounted for. We know that there are many fatalities. A new day without answers has increased our concern and we are doing everything we can to find our five colleagues,” Statoil CEO, Helge Lund, stated.
