Algeria: April 14, 2005


Islamic radical group GSPC denies that it was responsible for the recent murder of 14 civilians at a fake roadblock. If that's true, the killers may have been freelance Islamic radicals. Robbery was not suspected, as the victims cars were burned. Meanwhile, European nations find themselves with more active Algerian GSPC terrorists than Algeria itself. Britain recently arrested dozens of GSPC members. And France and Germany have hundreds under surveillance. GSPC prefers to operate in Europe, where strict rules of evidence and cultural barriers enables GSPC to operate without much fear of police interference. Unless, of course, a GSPC member kills a local cop. That will usually result in arrest and imprisonment.
