Algeria: 'The slaughter of the good and the bad was utterly predictable'

The Independent's Robert Fisk says Algeria has a long history of being as brutal with its captives as its captors. He argues that bloodshed at the hostage seizure at the gas plant in eastern Algeria was "utterly predictable". The Algerian press, meanwhile, focuses on the survival of 600 Algerian workers. One paper describes the assault as "audacious". And, after Oprah, Lance Armstrong is panned as a "cheat and a bully".
