The suicide bomber who rammed a delivery truck packed with explosives into a coast guard barracks in northern Algeria over the weekend, killing 30 officers, was 15 years old, El Watan newspaper said Monday.
The report identified the attacker as Nabil Belkacemi, a student from the Algerian capital, Algiers.
Al-Qaida in Islamic North Africa claimed responsibility for Saturday's attack on the barracks in the northern coastal town of Dellys, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Algiers.
In a statement posted on an Islamic Web site, the group said it was also behind a separate blast Thursday that killed at least 22 in eastern Algeria.
