Security forces killed four Islamic militants and captured two others during an anti-terrorism sweep in northwestern Algeria, news reports said Saturday. The operation on Thursday in Oum El Drou, near the town of Chlef some 210 kilometers (130 miles) west of Algiers, came after a bomb attack that killed five civil security guards three days earlier, daily L'Expression reported. The militants were quickly surrounded by security forces in a forest, leading to a gunfight in which the four militants, ages 18 to 24, were killed and two others detained, Liberte newspaper reported. After other militants fled, authorities dismantled their hide-out in the woods, which contained five assault rifles, two other automatic weapons and a stash of munitions, Liberte said.
