There is a high threat from terrorism in Algeria. A serious terrorist attack took place on 16 January 2013 at a gas installation near the town of In Amenas near the Algerian border with Libya. On 19 April 2014 terrorists attacked the Algerian army in Tizi Ouzou, killing 11 people. Terrorists have been involved in kidnaps in Algeria and the wider Sahel region, and further kidnaps are likely.
