Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika said 10 militants killed by government forces this week included fighters from Libya, Mali and Tunisia, state news reported on Wednesday. Algeria heightened border security last year after a French military intervention to drive al Qaeda-linked militants from Mali and an attack on Algeria's Amenas gas plant near the Libyan border.
