The leader of Algeria's main Islamic insurgency movement threatened to target American and French backers of the Algerian government in a video posted on an Islamic Web site Tuesday. France was taking the threat seriously, the country's Foreign Ministry said, adding that it is monitoring the activities of the Salafist Group for Call and Combat, known by its French acronym GSPC. The group recently announced links to al-Qaida. "America and France are looting (Algeria's) treasures and taking control over our destinies after the thief (Algerian President Abdelaziz) Bouteflika collaborated with them," Abu Musab Abdulwadood, the leader of the GSPC, said in the video. "Just learn, O Bouteflika, along with your aides the generals and your crusader masters, that we are coming with all God's might," he also said.
