Interpol To Help Algeria Track Terrorists

Interpol plans to provide Algeria with a new global communications system to track terrorists, the international police agency’s chief said Thursday. Interpol head Ronald Noble, who ended a two-day visit to Algeria on Wednesday, told the El Moudjahid newspaper that the tracking system will help the North African nation combat terrorism “more effectively.” Investigators in France and elsewhere have expressed concern that Algeria is becoming a major recruiting ground for Islamic extremists. The United States recently agreed to resume exports of military hardware and intelligence to Algeria to help the government fight Islamic militants. Noble said the device will be entirely financed by Interpol and should be in operation by April.
