A number of people have been killed and more injured in a car bomb attack on an Algerian naval barracks in the town of Dellys, 100km (62km) east of Algiers.
There is confusion about the death toll in the attack with sources putting it at between 10 and 16 dead.
It comes just two days after 20 people died in a suicide bomb attack in Batna.
That bomb exploded in a crowd awaiting a visit to the town by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. He later blamed Islamic militants for the attack.
A recent spate of major bombings in Algeria has generated fears of a return to the mass-scale violence of the 1990s, when Algeria's Islamic insurgency peaked. The country, a staunch U.S. ally in the war against terror, has been trying to turn the page on the 15-year insurgency that killed 200,000 people. Until recently, its efforts appeared mostly successful.
