AQIM trying to Kill It's Former Members

ALGIERS, Algeria, June 20 (UPI) -- Militant operatives who surrendered to Algerian authorities as part of an amnesty deal should be killed, an al-Qaida official said.

The Med Basin News Line said Friday that, according to sources, Abdul Malek Droukdel, chief of the al-Qaida Organization in the Islamic Maghreb, is concerned about information the al-Qaida operatives could give Algerian authorities.

  • The sources told Med Basin that Droukdel has put together a team of assassins whose mission is to kill the operatives.
  • Algerian authorities have detected threats to some former senior AQIM members," one of the sources said.
  • The amnesty deal was offered by Algerian President Abdul Aziz Bouteflika, and scores of alleged al-Qaida operatives took advantage of the temporary agreement.
  • The unidentified sources said Algerian officials have already received information about militant plots from some of the operatives.
  • Droukdel has demanded that all remaining AQIM members renew their oaths of loyalty to the organization, the sources told the news group.
