Italian Tourist Kidnapped in Algerian

Algiers – The Algerian APS news agency said on Friday that an Italian tourist had been abducted by suspected Islamic militants in the North African country’s remote southern desert.

The woman had been heading towards the southern town of Alidena when militants armed with automatic weapons began following her in all-terrain vehicles.

The group captured the tourist but released her guide and cook.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, is active in the area and has often abducted foreign tourists.
