Algeria: August 9, 2005


The government believes that a group of GSPC terrorists has moved from the south of the country to the rural areas outside the capital, with the intention of making more attacks. American trainers in the Sahel region, to the south of Algeria, have increased the effectiveness of the troops down there, making life uncomfortable for the Algerian terrorists who had moved south. Only a few GSPC terrorist gangs remain, all of them led by resourceful, and lucky, master terrorists. However, the most common form of GSPC terror is mass killings of civilians, or ambushing police or army patrols. This is often followed by a pursuit through the hills and forests of coastal Algeria. Eventually, the terrorist groups are caught, and most of the members killed in a violent last stand.
