Suicide bombers attack barracks in Algeria, source says

ALGIERS - Two suicide bombers attacked military barracks in the Algerian town of Cherchell, a security source said on Friday.
It was not immediately clear whether there were casualties. The bombers detonated themselves at the entrance not long after "iftar" -- the moment when Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan break their daily fast, the source said.Cherchell lies less than 100 km (62 miles) west of the capital Algiers.
Algeria, an energy exporter in North Africa, is still emerging from nearly two decades of conflict between security forces and Islamist militant groups that, at their peak in the 1990s, killed an estimated 200,000 people.
