Algeria Kills Two GSPC Terrorists

Algerian Newspaper Liberté (link in French. Incidentally, Algeria's Le Matin has been closed by the Algerian government last Friday, for the 'usual' reasons. A bad sign from a country that needs to reform itself to survive its terrorist threat) reports on a foiled incursion by an Al Qaeda-linked GSPC commando into the town of Dar El-Beïda, some 200 miles southwest of the capital Algiers. According to the newspaper, this brings to a total of sixteen terrorists neutralized in July, with some seven fatalities in operations in the surroundings of Boumerdès last week.
