After 50 innocents were killed by Al Qaeda this past week…
Thousands of people rallied Sunday in Algeria against terrorism.

The BBC reported on the rallies against Al Qaeda:

The biggest demonstration was in the capital, Algiers, where speakers denounced suicide attacks as being against Islam.

Members of Al Qaeda’s north Africa wing say they carried out both bombings.

It is the third major suicide bombing this year. More than 30 people were killed in bombings in Algiers in April.

The crowd, which was made up mainly of women, chanted slogans such as “Terrorists are not Muslims” and “the Algerian people reject terrorism and support President Abdelaziz Bouteflika”.

The BBC has video on the attacks this week HERE.
