AQ Terrorist Bombing in Algeria Kills at Least 23

From the Associated Press:

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) - Bombs heavily damaged the prime minister's office and a police station Wednesday, killing at least 23 people and wounding about 160, the country's official news agency said. Al-Jazeera television said it received a claim of responsibility from group al-Qaida in the Maghreb for both bombings.
200,000 people have died in Algeria since 1992, the result of Islamist violence, despite amnesties offered to terrorists willing to lay down their weapons (lefties aren't blaming the President for the 200,000 deaths yet, but, give them time).

Algerian Prime Minister Abdelaziz Belkhadem:

"The Algerian people stretched out a hand to them, and they respond with a terrorist act."
Well, duh. They're bloodthirsty religious fanatics. The only correct way to deal with them is extermination, as with any other dangerous vermin.

Update by Howie: There is some footage of the scene here on Liveleak.

Hat Tip: Kafir.
