OSLO (AP) - Norwegian energy company Statoil says that all five Norwegian employees missing after a terror attack on a natural gas plant in Algeria have been confirmed dead.

A company statement on Thursday said that the other 12 Statoil employees at the Ain Amenas plant are safe after the Jan. 16 attack that led to a four-day siege broken up Algerian forces. At least 37 people were taken hostage and 29 militants died.

The last missing Norwegian to be confirmed dead was Victor Sneberg, 56. The company said it would not provide any further details.

Norway sent a forensic team to Algeria to help identify the dead victims.
