    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JULY 22 - Concerns have risen in Algeria over possible terrorist infiltration and smugglers from neighboring Libya. The Algerian army has recently got hold of 1,680 vehicles for border control, report local media outlets, which note that the desert border between Algeria and Libya is over 1,000 kilometers long and gave evidence of its permeability in 2011 in the months following the fall of the Gaddafi regime. After recent attacks in Tunisia and Ain Defla (south-east of Algiers), Algerian armed forces decided to increase border control. (ANSAmed).
