A murdered child is pulled from a village well in Algeria. Following a pledge by Algeria's president that terrorism's final hour had struck and demonstrations which brought tens of thousands out onto the streets, more than 100 people were found murdered in Algeria. In the hills of the capital Algiers seven women and children - members of two families who had been kidnapped - were pulled from the village well. Their throats had been slashed and some of them had been decapitated.
