12 mennesker ble drept da to bomber gikk av i en by øst for Alger søndag. Blant de drepte var en fransk ingeniør. Al Qaida i islamsk Maghreb står høyst sannsynlig bak. Det er tredje angrep på fem dager.
The bombs went off at close intervals in the town of Beni Amrane in Boumerdes province, around 50 km (30 miles) from the capital, the sources said.
Eight soldiers accompanying the Frenchman working for French water engineering company Razel, two firemen and an unidentified man also died when their convoy hit the bombs planted next to the station, according to one security source.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Three employees of the same French company were injured last September in a suicide car bomb attack claimed by al Qaeda’s North African wing, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
