Paris, March 17 (DPA) An attack against an Algerian military convoy by a group of underground Muslim fighters in Jijel east of Algiers left at least one soldier dead Sunday. About 20 soldiers were wounded by a roadside bomb along the convoy’s route in El Aouana, reports from officials circles in Algiers said.

The soldiers engaged in a firefight with the terrorists and the army bombed the terrorists’ alleged hideout.

Separately, in Lakhdaria about 120 km east of Algiers, two young girls were killed in a terrorist attack on a bridge that is often used by the police’s antiterrorism division.
