Algiers: Two Tunisian terror suspects were arrested Saturday in eastern Algeria, a security source said.
Tunisian security services informed their Algerian counterparts about the intrusion of two suspects into the Algerian territories, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
The two men served as liaison between Tunisia-based Okba Ibn Nafaa group and Algeria-based Caliphate`s Soldiers group, the source said, adding that they were on board a vehicle carrying a big amount of money, an automatic gun, and some secret documents and letters.
Meanwhile, APS news agency reported that security services arrested a university professor and another man involved in a specialising network of recruiting youngsters to the fiefs of the so-called Islamic State (IS).
These operations come after that Algerian army killed Abdelmalek Gouri, the leader of the Caliphate`s Soldiers, which claimed responsibility for the beheading of French national Herve Gourdel in September.
The French tourist Herve Gourdel was abducted in Algeria on Sep 21, and assassinated two days later.
The Caliphate Soldiers claimed for this crime, saying they did that to pay allegiance to IS.
