A member of Algeria's security forces was killed and four other people were injured in two attacks in Algeria this week that have been blamed on armed Islamic extremists, newspapers reported Saturday.

Meanwhile, in another incident, an armed civilian guard was injured when a group of men opened fire on him in the Ain Defla region, around 160 kilometers east of Algiers, the papers said. (Albawaba.com)
