Title[edit]

This title is rather POV (martyrs from whose perspective?) and extremely unhelpful to searchers. The Atlas mountains stretch from Morocco to Tunisia; I rather suspect there have been martyrs, Catholic and otherwise, elsewhere in them. The affair of the Tibhirine monks is rather important in Algerian politics, and is much better known by the name of that village. I suggest retitling the page "Tibhirine monks' killing". - MBarth (talk) 12:59, 14 July 2009 (UTC) Please the GIA part of the Gov like al Quida being part of the Pakistani ISI this may be true in reguard to individuals or maybe large factions but I doubt most of the Gov. was and when did the gov start support or did they start it and then it got out of control? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.66.6.229 (talk) 19:48, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

I moved the page to assassination of the monks of Tibhirine. Gugganij (talk) 14:52, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

"Assassination"[edit]

The equivalent article in French is called Assassinat des moines de Tibhirine.
The word assassinat typically means "murder" and that would probably be a better translation in this case.
Therefore, Murder of the monks of Tibhirine, which is the title of the French WP article.
