TORONTO (AP) -- Police have confirmed that the remains of a Canadian, possibly one of the militants involved in the hostage taking at an Algerian gas plant in January, have been found.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which has sent officers to Algeria, said Monday the investigation is ongoing and that no further information will be given at this time.
Algeria's prime minister has said two Canadians of Arab descent were among the militants involved in the gas plant attack.
Al-Qaida-affiliated militants stormed the complex near the Libyan border on Jan. 16, taking hundreds of people hostage. The resulting fight with the Algerian army ended with at least 37 hostages and 29 militants killed. At least 36 of the dead hostages were foreigners.
