14/08/2011 13:38:00
A suicide bomb attack on a police station in eastern Algeria early Sunday injured 29 people, the French language daily El Watan reported. On its online edition. Two of the casualties are Chinese nationals.

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 around 0500 (CET).

El Watan said that the suicide bomber rammed the entrance of the police station, causing major damage. Understandably, the the blast that rocked the area woke local residents.

Eastern Algeria, notably the Kabylie region, has been rocked by a series of such attacks this summer. The most spectacular was on June 25, 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 from Algiers.
