I know we have heard these rumors before but it was announced on the Algerian news that a deal has finally been arranged for returning the Algerians. A deal that does not involve the Algerians giving in on the US requirements... such as withholding the men's passports. (click on the title for more information...)
My second client is an Algerian who was turned over to the pakistani police in return for a $5000 bounty. He had no ties to terrorism and the US government quickly learned he was an innocent civilian but would not return him unless the Algerian government agreed to certain "requirements."
Lets hope this deal does not fall thru and the men can get home quickly.
