Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Algeria, Elections, Governance

The attack was comprised of two blasts, ten minutes apart detonated by way of remote controlled mobile phones. The attack wounded fourteen and killed one police officer, writes [1] Nouri, whose amazing insight gives us an eye-opener to the election scene in his country.
