HOUSTON - The family of a Texas man who died in a deadly terrorist
attack at a natural gas complex in Algeria says he is being remembered for his
"loving heart, caring nature" and sense of humor.
Frederick Buttaccio's family says in a statement Saturday it had been
informed by the State Department that their loved one had been killed.
U.S. officials told The Associated Press Buttaccio's remains were recovered
The four-day standoff ended Saturday after Algerian troops stormed the
complex. The clash left at least 23 hostages dead and killed all 32 militants
