Al Qaeda militants ambushed a bus carrying Algerian soldiers in the eastern part of the country and killed two of them. The soldiers were executed to retaliate for the recent death of Boualem Bekai, a.k.a. Khaled al-Mig, reportedly the "number two" leader of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, who was killed by the Algerian military near Tizi Ouzou.
