ALGIERS - Two people were killed in Algeria on Saturday when a suicide bomber targeted a police headquarters in a town 70 km (45 miles) east of the capital, a local security source told Reuters.

Al-Qaida's north African branch frequently attacks security forces in rural areas of Algeria, but it has been months since there have been any bomb attacks in the center of a town.

The bomb struck in the early hours of Saturday morning in the center of the town of Bordj Menaiel, near the local police headquarters, said the source, who did not want to be identified.

A police officer was one of the two killed, said the source. He said several others had been seriously wounded in the attack and the death toll was therefore likely to rise. There was no official confirmation of the attack.
