Plague outbreak denied
----------------------
Algeria has dismissed reports that about 40 Al-Qaeda militants were killed by an outbreak of bubonic plague at a secret training camp in the country. "No case of plague of any type has been recorded in any region of Algeria since 2003," the health ministry said. Reports had suggested that an Al-Qaeda offshoot had been experimenting with the plague to create a biological weapon.
