The 2007 Algiers bombings occurred on 11 April 2007 when two suicide car bombs exploded in the Algerian capital Algiers.
The headquarters of the Algerian prime minister were hit by a large explosion that left many people dead and injured and could be heard 10 km away. Another explosion targeted a police station in an eastern suburb of the city, near the international airport.
Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the bombings after the attack took place.
The first attack, which was on the prime minister's office, killed 12 people and injured 118, and the second attack on the police station in the Bab Ezzouar district of Algiers killed 11 and injured 44. The Al-Qaeda group in the Maghreb is the group claiming responability for these two attacks. This group was formally known as the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC).
