LONDON - Britain will contribute intelligence and counter-terrorism assets to help dismantle the militant network that carried out the hostage attack at an Algerian gas complex last week, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.

"We will contribute British intelligence and counter-terrorism assets to an international effort to find and dismantle the network that planned and ordered the brutal assault at In Amenas," he told parliament, promising a "strong security response."

He also said northern Africa was becoming a "magnet for jihadists."
