Canada concerned about 'homegrown' fighters

Involvement of two Canadians in Algeria gas-plant attack sparks debate over actions of fellow citizens.

    Police in Canada are investigating the involvement of two young men in an attack on a natural gas plant in Algeria.

    The men, who died when Algerian troops counter-attacked, were part of an al-Qaeda-linked group that held dozens of hostages at the facility in January.

    The incident has led to a debate on what the country calls "homegrown fighters."
