    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 22 - Algerian security forces ambushed and killed five Islamic terrorists as they tried to drive two SUVs laden with weapons and munitions across the border from Tunisia, Radio Mosaique cited security sources as saying Friday. The Islamic militias made their attempt on Tuesday during the Algeria-Burkina Faso world cup qualifier, when the entire nation was glued to their TVs. Documents found on board the SUVs identified them as Tunisian, Libyan, and Malian citizens. The Algerian military set up the ambush on an intelligence tip, sources said. (ANSAmed).
