Algerian troops killed two Islamists during an ambush east of Algiers on Friday, the defence ministry said.

Two Kalashnikov assault rifles and ammunition were seized in the operation in the Azeffoun area of the Tizi Ouzou region, the ministry said in a statement.

Islamist-linked violence rocked Algeria in the 1990s but has since waned, although armed groups remain active in central and eastern Algeria where they mount attacks on security forces.
