Boumerdes bomb wounds woman
[MAGHAREBIA] A bomb kaboom left an Algerian woman with serious injuries, El Watan reported on Sunday (February 17th). The victim reportedly stepped on the bomb, buried by cut-throats in an olive grove near Thénia, 15km south of Boumerdès.

In other security news, ANP troops on Sunday killed two cut-throats in the Batna town of Chellala.

One of the men was wanted in connection with the 2007 Batna suicide kaboom that targeted President Abdelaziz Bouteflika
... 10th president of Algeria. He was elected in 1999 and is currently on his third term, which is probably why Algerians are ready to dump him...

#7  Maybe they were shooting for something like Atascadero (CA), which roughly means mire, bog or pig sty in Espanish.

#6  Boue is mud. Sounds to me like they named the place Nightsoil, guess they could have been getting at Good Farmland, but my French is a tad rusty.

#1  Oh, you suddenly care, But not before now?

What's the difference, the world is watching?

Or is the cash running out, and you can't afford it.
