In the past week, counter-terror operations, 90 kilometers west of the capital, have resulted in eleven Islamic terrorists killed, and at least three arrests. Another operation, 490 kilometers west of the capital, resulted in three arrests. Islamic terrorists determined to operate inside Algeria, are having a very hard time of it. The civilian population is generally hostile to them, and the security forces have over a decade of experience with this sort of thing. Most Islamic terrorists have fled the country, mainly to Europe.
