"Three Algerians were assassinated... in a barbaric strike on their trucks as they travelled between (the Mauritanian capital) Nouakchott and (the Algerian city of) Ouargla", it said in a statement quoted by Algeria's APS state news agency.
"Several factors indicate that the Moroccan occupation forces in the Western Sahara carried out this cowardly assassination with a sophisticated weapon," it added. The reported killing took place on Monday.
