The No. 2 al-Qaida official in Algeria was killed Thursday in clash with an army patrol, the country's national radio said, citing security officials. Samir Mousaab was killed near the village of Si Moustapha in the Boumerdes region, 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of the capital, Algiers, the radio reported. The radio said Mousaab's body was identified by former members of the Salafist Group for Call and Combat, or GSPC, an insurgent group that changed its name to al-Qaida in Islamic North Africa when it announced its alliance with al-Qaida in January.
