Question of the Day
Suicide bombing kills 10 soldiers
ALGIERS — A suicide bomber blew up a refrigerated truck packed with explosives inside a military encampment southeast of the Algerian capital yesterday, killing 10 soldiers and wounding up to 35, a security official said.
The truck drove into the post on the edge of Lakhdaria, a town 48 miles southeast of Algiers in the restive region of Kabylie, as the doors opened in the morning for arriving personnel, the security official said.
Al Qaeda in Islamic North Africa claimed responsibility for the attack.
Convoy ambushed, 10 beheaded
MANILA — Muslim insurgents ambushed a Philippine marine convoy searching for a kidnapped Italian priest and killed at least 14 troops, beheading at least 10 of them, a military spokesman said yesterday.
The chaotic, seven-hour firefight took place in dense jungle on the southern island of Basilan. The government has touted Basilan as a success story in the war on terrorism since U.S. troops carried out yearlong counterterror training exercises there in 2002 aimed at helping oust the al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf group.
Four failed bombers get life terms
LONDON — A judge yesterday sentenced four men he described as al Qaeda-inspired plotters to life in prison for trying to bomb London’s transit system in July 2005, two weeks after suicide bombers killed 52 commuters.
Muktar Said Ibrahim, 29; Yassin Omar, 26; Ramzi Mohammed, 25; and Hussain Osman, 28, must spend at least 40 years in jail before becoming eligible for parole, the judge said. A jury on Monday found them guilty of conspiracy to murder.
