Algeria on high alert after fuel tankers go missing
A quick update on the ongoing situation in Algeria...this is pretty disturbing.
A report has surfaced out of the Algerian capital of Algiers that several fuel tanker trucks were stolen, increasing fears that Al-Qaeda in North Africa could be preparing more attacks of catostrophic proportions. Earlier today, the group claimed responsibility for a car bombing at a police station east of the capital that left four policemen dead.
Meanwhile, a man suspected of being the mastermind behind the April 11th attacks on the Prime Minister's office has been arrested by security forces.
