AQ terrorists surrender to Algerian police

Algerian security sources have said that 10 gunmen belonging to the Al-Qaeda Organization in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb [AQLIM] have surrendered to the authorities in two batches and that some of them mentioned recent armed clashes between gunmen that refuse to give up terrorism and some comrades of theirs that have expressed the wish to surrender. All of them had been convicted in absentia and sentenced to terms ranging from 20 years in prison to execution. The sources said that it is likely that these gunmen will benefit from new anticipated calming measures that were paved for by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika when he called them “a conditional general amnesty”.
