An important member of AQIM killed near Tizi Ouzou
ALGIERS - A key member of Al Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) was killed by Algerian security services near Tizi Ouzou, 100 km east of Algiers, said Wednesday the Algerian press agency APS, citing security sources.
- The man, aged about forty, but whose identity is not revealed, was with an armed group in a forest in the province of Tizi Ouzou.
The soldiers killed him in an ambush made to the armed group.
This operation also helped to recover a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
Kabylia and parts of eastern Algeria are increasingly affected by the attacks usually committed by AQIM terrorists, who attack the security forces.
