Continuing jihad in Algeria

There are so many Islamic hot spots it sometimes it is hard to keep track of them all.  Algeria is one of the places which we have talked about before, and is poised to tilt towards sharia and pure Islam.  This is another example of how the jihad advances.

Africa is on the way to becoming a complete Islamic continent, Algeria is but a symptom of the creeping disease known as Islam.

Algeria suicide bomb attack hits military academy

The attack took place in the town of Cherchell, about 100km (60 miles) west of the capital Algiers.

One or two bombers set off their explosives just after the breaking of the Ramadan fast, reports said.

No group has said it carried out the attack. It comes 12 days after a suicide car bombing of a police station in Tizi Ouzu wounded 29 people.

That attack was claimed by the Islamist group Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which is active in the region.

It was not clear how many of those killed in the latest attack were military. A hospital source told Reuters news agency 16 soldiers had been killed and two civilians.

Political violence has subsided since the 1990s when more than 150,000 were killed after the 1992 election, won by an Islamist party, was annulled.

But militant groups continue to carry out sporadic attacks.
