Judge Mohammed Hammad Abdel-Hadi resigned from the case on Sunday, giving no reason. His resignation means a new trial for the officers accused of using excessive force.
Since President Hosni Mubarak was deposed in February, almost 100 police officers have been brought to trial on charges of killing and wounding protesters. All were acquitted or received suspended sentences.
The new figure is a significant jump from the previous declaration of 23 hostages and 32 attackers killed, some of them when the Algerian military overran the remaining captors on Saturday. An Algerian official had warned earlier Sunday that the toll would rise as de-mining units and security forces went through the complex, which was raided on Wednesday.
In Tokyo, a Japanese engineering firm said that 10 of its Japanese and seven of its foreign workers are still missing.
Two Algerian survivors, employed by the Japanese firm JGC, said nine Japanese workers were killed during the siege, which ended on Saturday when Algerian special forces overwhelmed the attackers.
"The federal government...has increased the crisis through neglect and threats that have led to dangerous consequences," Kurdish Regional Government President Barzani charged. "Iraq has, for a long time, been going through a major crisis because of the neglect of services for citizens, and not implementing the constitution and agreements."
Barzani also backed "the legitimate demands" of demonstrators in mostly-Sunni areas of Iraq who have been protesting for weeks over discrimination, detentions, and anti-terror laws.
Al-Maliki expressed surprise at Barzani's statement, which he said "reveals a desire to hinder dialogue among the Iraqi people and components, and revive ugly sectarian strife". He asserted, "It seems that these factions do not like to see agreement between Iraqis."
"The deployment towards the north of the forces of Operation Serval, which began 24 hours ago, is on course with troops inside the towns of Niono and Sevare," Lieutenant Colonel Emmanuel Dosseur told reporters.
Niono is about 350 kilometres (220 miles) northeast of the capital Bamako and 60 kilometres south of Diabaly, seized on Monday by Islamists and then heavily bombed by French planes before it was reclaimed by French and Malian Government troops.
Sevare, about 630 kilometres (390 miles) north-east of Bamako, has a strategically important airport which could help serve as a base for operations further north.
The official said the bodies were difficult to identify and it was impossible to determine if they were foreign hostages or those who had taken over the facility on Wednesday.
Ennahar TV is claiming from sources that 25 bodies were found, all of executed hostages.
Algerian media reports that, of the 30 attackers of the In Amenas gas plant, there were 11 Tunisians, 7 Egyptians, 5 Malians, 3 Algerians, 2 Canadians, 1 Niger, and 1 Mauritanian.
An official in the Ministry of Health said the toll is expected to rise.
1103 GMT: Egypt. Violent clashes between civilians and police forces broke out late Saturday night in the working-class district of Shubra El-Kheima in north Cairo, after an officer accidentally killed a bystander during a police operation.
The officer was reportedly "chasing a drug dealer" when he fired his pistol in the air, killing a man with the stray bullet.
As news spread of the man's death, hundreds of angry residents attacked police forces in the area and blocked traffic. They then sought to break into Shubra El-Kheima’s Second Police Station.
An officer sustained multiple injuries while trying to prevent the crowds from storming the station, and a recruit was shot. Police used tear gas and fired rounds in the air to disperse the crowds.
The Algerian Minister of Communications has said the current death toll of 23 hostages will be higher and will be confirmed later today.
Cameron said three other British hostages and one British national are believed to have died.
One raid late on Saturday targeted a vehicle transporting four suspected insurgents in Wadi Abida, 170 kilometres (110 miles) east of the capital Sanaa.
"The bodies of the four dead were charred," the tribal source said, adding that only the body of Ismail bin Jamil, a local Al Q'aeda leader, was identified.
Another raid struck a vehicle in the same area killing four passengers from the Al-Haytak clan, part of the Abida tribe.
A raid earlier in the evening targeted another vehicle transporting four people, but a rocket missed the car allowing the passengers enough time to flee.
The raids bring to at least 22 the number of people killed in US drone strikes since attacks were intensified on 24 December. Washington tripled the number of attacks in 2012, carrying out 53 recorded strikes.

An Algerian ministry said a total of 685 Algerian and 107 foreign workers were freed over the course of the operation.
