ALGIERS - A journalist was shot dead on Friday in an area of Algeria where insurgents linked to al-Qaida are active, a security official said.

There was no confirmation the attack was carried out by al-Qaida-affiliated militants, but the killing revived memories of the 1990s when journalists were routinely targeted by Islamist insurgents fighting government security forces.
