Suicide Bombing Kills 8 in Algeria

Algerian public radio says eight people have been killed by a suicide bombing in the country's east.

Reports say the blast occurred late Saturday when a van full of explosives detonated outside a police station in the coastal town of Zemmouri.

Nineteen others were wounded.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Last week, a bombing at a police station in another northern city wounded more than 20 people.

The North African branch of al-Qaida, known as al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, said it was behind that blast.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
