Algeria police hit, at least six killed
In the Kabylia region, about 100 km east of the capital, Algiers, four police stations were hit Tuesday in apparently coordinated attacks. The amount of injuries is unclear. Residents reported that the bombs were set off from vehicles near the buildings.
As of late, no-one has claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks.
The army and Islamists, however, have often clashed in the mountainous region. According to BBC news, these attacks were the first to target police stations in the country since a series of truck bombs exploded in Algiers last October.
Last month, the first major in several months occurred, 15 people were killed in army and Islamist group clashes.
According to Reuters, seven bombs exploded, killing six people. The targets have not been specified. Residents suspect that a group of Islamists aligned with Al Qaeda, who recently started a campaign of bombings and ambushes in Algeria, are responsible for the attack.
The attacked police stations are located in Si Mustafa, Draa Benkheda, Meklaa and Zemouri villages. Locals reported that there were unconfirmed reports of rigged bombs in vehicles that were set off remotely.
