Muslim guerrillas in Algeria killed 16 people overnight in a village in Blida province, 50 km south of the capital, Algiers, the Algerian security forces said yesterday.

News of the killings came one day after Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia claimed his government had largely quashed the five-year-old Muslim guerrilla struggle. Reuters - Paris
