Looks like end of the world: 92-year-old as 42 killed in 50 forest fires in Algeria

At least 42 people including soldiers have been killed in Algeria as the country fights around 50 forest fires.

A 92-year-old woman living in the Kabyle mountain village of Ait Saada said the scene looked like "the end of the world".

"Only criminal hands can be behind the simultaneous outbreak of about 50 fires," Interior Minister Kamel Beldjoud said.
