CAIRO Algeria's military has been rocked by new Islamic militants' attacks that have killed up to 10 soldiers.

The attacks were attributed to the two leading insurgency movements in the North African state and aided by Al Qaida. On Jan. 3, Islamic insurgents killed 39 Algerian commandos in the eastern part of the country.

Algerian sources said the latest attacks were reported on late Tuesday in the region of Tizi Ouzou region about 100 kilometers east of Algiers, Middle East Newsline reported. The sources said an infantry patrol was attacked when two roadside bombs were detonated by Islamic insurgents.
