Algeria: Suicide Bomb Attack Wounds Dozens

A suicide bomb attack on a police station in eastern Algeria early Sunday injured 29 people, according to reports.

The suicide bomber rammed the entrance of the police station causing major damage, French language daily El Watan said.

The paper said that two Chinese nationals had been injured, while Mohamed Nedir, director of the university hospital in Tizi Ouzou, around 100 kilometres (60 miles) east of the capital, said eight policemen were among the injured.

The two Chinese were inside their clothing shop, which is close to the police station, when the blast went off in the early hours of the morning.

Eastern Algeria, notably the Kabylie region, has been rocked by a series of similar attacks this summer.

The most spectacular was on 25 June, when three men, including the son of the former number two in the outlawed Islamic Salvation Front (FIS), drove around on a truck packed with explosives.

They were intercepted and killed by security forces 60 kilometres (40 miles) from Algiers.
