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.
