The state of some of the bodies discovered, a day after a bloody raid ended a four-day siege at the plant in the Sahara desert, is making it difficult to tell whether the dead were hostages or the attackers, the official said.



He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.



Algerian authorities said yesterday that 23 hostages and 32 captors were known to have died but that those figures were expected to rise.
