Death toll in Algeria barracks attack rises to 36-source

ALGIERS, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Thirty-six people were killed when two suicide bombers attacked military barracks in the Algerian town of Cherchell on Friday, a security source said.

The figure included 12 soldiers, the source said.

The bombers detonated themselves at the entrance not long after “iftar” — the moment when Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan break their daily fast, the source said.
