Britain may launch an Osama Bin Laden-like 'kill or snatch' operation in the Sahara desert to nail the one-eyed jihad 'Prince' Mokhtar Belmokhtar, believed to be responsible for the hostage standoff in Algeria.
A crack British team of "specialists" has arrived in Algeria to hunt down the terror chief behind the hostage carnage and Prime Minister David Cameron said the SAS units are on standby, The Sun reported.
Cameron told parliament SAS was on standby to rescue survivors, but the Algerian government had so far rejected five offers for launching an all-out operation to nail Belmokhtar.
Cameron said Britain would help lead a robust security response to the crisis and " will do everything we can to hunt down the people responsible".
