PRIME Minister David Cameron said today that the number of British citizens at risk in the Algerian terror attack has now been quite significantly reduced.

It was reported last night that around 30 British citizens were believed to be at risk.

Mr Cameron told MPs that the Algerian government had not warned him it was planning to take military action to end the terrorist attack at a gasfield despite his request to be kept informed.
