U.K. May Train Algerian Army in Counter-Terrorism

U.K. Special Forces may train the Algerian Army in counter-terrorism techniques as part of a security partnership agreed between Prime Minister David Cameron and Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

Cameron, the first U.K. premier to visit Algeria since it gained independence in 1962, is looking to deepen ties with the north African nation in the wake of the hostage crisis there this month and a battle against Islamists in neighboring Mali.
