In the early hours of Jan. 16, 2013, a group of Islamist militants linked to Al Qaeda’s North African franchise—Al Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb (AQIM)—hijacked a bus transporting workers from the Tigantourine gas facility, 40 km southwest of In Aménas, Algeria, and close to the Libyan border. The militants did this with the likely intention of holding the workers for ransom and other concessions.
Although the intended outcome ultimately failed, the subsequent, bloody hostage siege that ensued was so shocking and unprecedented, that it has prompted many energy companies, and those organizations supporting the industry, to look more closely at security threats to personnel.
