That just tells us that al-Qaida is committed to creating terror wherever they are and we've got to fight back." - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta after three U.S. citizens were killed in last week's hostage standoff at a natural gas complex in Algeria.
"We changed our whole lives to get organized for power cuts, but now we have no idea when the power will come or go." - Retired teacher Mariam Ghassan after the Syrian government blamed a rebel attack on a key power line for a blackout that hit Damascus and much of the country's south overnight.
