Seven hostages also lost their lives as troops tried to free them.<br /> <br /> The state oil and gas company Sonatrach says the militants had boob-trapped the complex with explosives.<br /> <br /> Scores of westerners were inside the gas facility on Wednesday when it was seized by Islamist fighters.<br /> <br /> During the crisis, hundreds of people were held captive and although most were released, dozens are thought to have died as Algerian troops fought on several occasions to take back the plant.<br /> <br /> A further sixteen hostages were freed on Saturday, including two Americans. But the army also found 15 burned bodies at the plant.<br /> <br /> The exact death toll including gunmen, Algerians and foreigners taken hostage is still unclear.

This was a mock trial of the prophet, broadcast on the internet. Last year Jones angered Muslims worldwide by burning a copy of the Koran.<br /> <br /> Some called on Egypt’s President Morsi to take action. Many in the crowd were supporters of Islamist groups.<br /> <br /> Or the protest may have been about a film produced by Jones that insults Mohammed, according to the protesters, and was financed by Egyptian Coptic Christians living in the USA. No-one is entirely sure.<br /> <br /> The police stood by to let the crowd spend its anger, then broke up the rally peacefully.
