Al-Qaeda link to Algiers bombs

Algeria suffered its worst violence since its long civil war on Wednesday when terrorists affiliated to al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for twin bombings in the capital, Algiers, that killed up to 30 people and wounded more than 100 others. Algerian Prime Minister Abdel-Aziz Belkhadem condemned what he called "cowardly and criminal attacks" after separate blasts at his own office.
