DELLYS, Algeria (AFP) — A suicide car bomb at a naval barracks in northeast Algeria killed at least 28 people and wounded 60 on Saturday, hospital sources told AFP.
The new toll was a sharp rise on previous figures of 17 dead, all but one of them service personnel, and more than 30 injured.
The bomber smashed a van packed with explosives through a back gate of the coastguard barracks at Dellys, some 60 miles (100 kilometres) east of Algiers and blew it up, witnesses said.
