Algiers Bombing

The North African branch of al-Qaeda, formerly known as the GSPC, has claimed responsibility for today's twin bombings in Algeria. One of the blasts damaged the headquarters of the Algerian Prime Minister, while another targeted Interpol. The Ha'aretz article says this fits into a pattern of increasing violence since the GSPC hooked up with al-Qaeda in January. I honestly know nothing about Algeria, but suspect it remains the least stable country in North Africa, so this bears watching.
