Algerian soldiers killed three Islamist militants and seized guns and explosives southwest of the Algerian capital on Tuesday, the defense ministry said.

“During anti-terrorist operations, an army unit killed three terrorists today after an attempted ambush in the Tagrara area” 150 kilometers (90 miles) from Algiers, it said in a statement.

The ministry said two Kalashnikov assault rifles and a large quantity of ammunition and explosives was also recovered.

Violence involving armed Islamists in Algeria has fallen considerably since the civil war of the 1990s, but groups linked to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb still carry out some attacks, mostly on security forces.

The Algerian army says more than 100 armed Islamists were killed in 2014.
