In light of yesterday’s attacks in Algiers, Abu Muqawama is going to link to some reading on Islamist militant groups in Algeria and the attacks themselves. First is Emily Hunt’s piece on the GSPC. Emily spent time in Algeria researching this piece last year and has written a good primer on one of Algeria’s militant groups — albeit from a U.S.-centric perspective. Next, a timeline from Le Figaro showing other Islamist attacks in Algeria since 2000. Third, here is a link to Le Monde’s coverage of the attacks, which has lots of videos, background reading, pictures, and a link to today’s editorial. Finally, here is a link to the BBC’s coverage, which includes a link to BBC World’s video report.
