LONDON (AP) — BP has named Stephen Green as the fourth member of its staff who was killed during a terrorist assault on an Algerian gas plant last month.

The company said Tuesday that 47-year-old Green was killed when terrorists took control of the Ain Amenas plant.

Officials said his name could not be released until an inquest had been completed.

BP had earlier named three other employees killed in the attack as Seb John, Carlos Estrada and Gordon Rowan.

The Ain Amenas facility is jointly run by BP, Algeria's Sonatrach and Norway's Statoil

The Jan. 16 attack, which led to a four-day standoff between al-Qaida-affiliated militants and the Algerian army, left at least 37 foreign workers and 29 militants dead.
