Algeria: Two Men Found Murdered On Fifth Day Of Ramadan

From Al Arabiya:
Two men including the muezzin, who leads and recites the call to prayer, were found murdered in a mosque in Oued Sebaa in Sidi Bel Abbes Province, west of Algeria, on Monday, the fifth day of Ramadan.

The Algerian news agency quoted a security source as saying that Algerian security forces found two men, a muezzin, 64 years old, and a worshiper, 67 years old, killed in Khaled bin al-Walid mosque on Monday morning….

The crime deepens imams’ fears in Algeria that they may be attacked inside and outside mosques. It comes less than a week after they held a protest in the capital to demand security and protection after frequent attacks on them by extremists.
