(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The ISIS terrorist group claimed responsibility on Monday for a suicide bomb attack in east Algeria which police said had been foiled.

In a statement posted on the internet, the group said a “martyrdom-seeking brother” had been able to detonate an “explosives-laden bag” at a police station in the city of Constantine.

The terrorist group said “a number of apostates” were killed and wounded in Sunday’s attack.

Police officials said a policeman managed to foil the attack, opening fire on the bomber and triggering the explosives belt he was wearing.

National police said the attacker had been approaching the police station when he was shot by the officer.

At the time of the foiled attack around 9:00 pm (2000 GMT), a loud explosion was heard near the police station in central Constantine, national news agency APS reported.
