Latest update : 2008-08-24

Algerian government forces killed 10 extremists during a military operation in the west of the North African country. This follows a week of violence in which scores of people were killed after Al Qaeda bomb attacks in the east of the country.

Algerian troops killed 10 Islamist militants during a security operation on Sunday in the western province of Ain Defla, the interior ministry said.
   
The ministry gave no details of the incident, but said security forces recovered five Kalashnikovs, four semi-automatic rifles and a grenade launcher during the operation, which followed a week of violence in the North African country.
   
Two car bomb attacks in eastern Algeria on Wednesday killed at least 12 people near a hotel and a military headquarters. The previous day a suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into the entrance of a police school, also in eastern Algeria, killing 43 people
   
Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
   
Eleven members of Algeria's security forces and a civilian were killed in an ambush by an armed Islamist group in the east of the country last Sunday.
