The bomb was planted to target troops who use the area as a shooting range, said the newspapers, adding the security forces launched a hunt for the offenders in the nearby Ahl Regueb forest.

On December 20, an army colonel was killed in a gun battle between troops and Islamists in the Bouira region, 125 kilometers (80 miles) southeast of the capital Algiers.

The clash reportedly broke out during a search operation for a “terrorist group” in the mountainous region after the arrest of a senior Al-Qaeda member in the area.
