The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the series of coordinated attacks in Paris Friday night that killed nearly 130 people.Algeria suffered a war in the 1990s between the government and Islamists that killed 200 000 people.Armed groups remain active in central and eastern Algeria, and the defence ministry says that more than 60 Islamists have been killed this year in clashes with security forces.
