Six Algerians Killed Following Zouabri’s Death
Six people have been killed in an armed attack a day after the Algerian security forces killed a top Islamic militant, the official news agency APS has reported.
All the victims of the attack carried out by suspected Islamic rebels were reported to belong to the same family.
Another relative was wounded in the violence at a village in Bougara, an estimated 24 kilometers from the town of Boufarik where Antar Zouabri, who led the extremist Armed Islamic Group (GIA), was shot dead on Friday.
Earlier, Algerian officials had shown reporters the body of the slain Islamist, who died in a gun battle south of Algiers. (Albawaba.com)
