ALGIERS — Algeria's prime minister says that nations of the Sahel region of northwestern Africa don't need a foreign presence to fight terrorism.

Ahmed Ouyahia has warned that any Western presence in the region would turn local extremists into a "mujaheddin" and would "create an inferno through the best of intentions."

His comments Sunday were reported by Algeria's APS news agency.

Algeria and its neighbors Mali, Niger and Mauritania are combatting a local al-Qaida offshoot that moves across the countries' often-porous borders, staging attacks and kidnappings.
