The report gave no new toll for the number of dead among either the hostages or the kidnappers, who were described as a "multinational terrorist" group.

Earlier Algerian TV had said that four foreign workers, two Britons and two Filipinos, died in the operation.

Earlier on Thursday, the militants themselves said that dozens had died in the assault.
