Amother 18 people were injured. A suicide bomber rammed a van full of explosives into a police station in the northern part of the country about in Zemmouri el-Bahri, a popular beach with holidaymakers, near Boumerde, which was also a target for a double bombs attack two months ago (see – Boumerde 06.08.08).
