Algiers Suicide Bomb Kills 10

At least 10 people were killed Friday in a suicide bomb attack at a military academy in Algiers, security officials said. More were wounded in the attack, but officials did not give an exact number. Officials refused to specify whether the wounded or dead were civilians or military personnel. The attacks coincided with one of the holiest days of Ramadan, a day that is often followed by attacks. Although no one has claimed responsibility, similar attacks have been blamed on al Qaeda in Maghreb. Islamic extremists and the Algerian government have been battling since 1992, when the army canceled a national election that a now-banned Muslim fundamentalist party was poised to win.
