A Scottish man held hostage in Algeria has spoken of his relief at being rescued.
Iain Strachan, 38, from Howwood in Renfrewshire, was among 100 foreign workers freed from terrorists who attacked a BP oil plant at In Amenas on Thursday.
Speaking on Algerian television, Mr Strachan said he was "very relieved to be out".
"Obviously we still don't really know what's happening back on site," he said.
"So, as much as we're glad to be out, our thoughts are with colleagues who are still there at the moment."
He said the Algerian army's assistance has been "fantastic".
"I've never been so relieved as when they came and got us off site. We thank them very much for that," he said.
Another hostage, Mark Grant, 29, from Grangemouth, reportedly texted his wife to let her know he was safe.
The message read: "I'm safe. Got me out this afternoon. With the Algerian army."
Alan Wright, 37, of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, and Kenneth Whiteside, originally from Glenrothes, Fife, but now based in Johannesburg, South Africa, were also reportedly held in the attack.
