Frederick Buttaccio: Texas American Dead in Algeria Hostage Crisis — UPDATED

The Huffington Post has this Associated Press report, "Frederick Buttaccio Dead: One American Has Died In Algeria Hostage Crisis, U.S. Officials Say."

And here's my live blog: "Algerian Hostage Crisis — Updates : Americans Still Being Held."

UPDATED: I'm adding this report from CBS Houston, "Texas Man Among Hostages In Algeria; Reported To Be ‘Alive And Well’."

Hopefully this is the same man identified as dead in AP's reporting, although a number of Americans were taken hostage, so we'll see.
