FILE - In this Jan. 21, 2013 file photo, Algerian firemen carry a coffin containing the body of a person killed during the gas facility hostage situation at the morgue in Ain Amenas, Algeria. In an Oct. 3, 2012 internal al-Qaida letter found by the AP, international terrorist Moktar Belmoktar is excoriated for his unwillingness to follow orders and critiqued for his failure to carry out any large attack. His ego bruised, he quit and formed his own group to compete directly with his former employer. Within months, he claimed responsibility for two attacks, in Algeria and Niger, so large that they rivaled the biggest operations undertaken by al-Qaida's wing on the continent. In January, his cell penetrated a BP-operated gas plant in Algeria, kidnapping over 600 people, the largest hostage-crisis in recent memory.(AP Photo/Anis Belghoul, File)
