Algeria wildfire death toll rises as 25 soldiers killed

Algeria’s president has announced that 25 soldiers have been killed saving residents from the wildfires ravaging forests and villages east of the capital, adding to the fire death toll this week in the North African nation.
The soldiers died during a rescue operation in the mountainous Kabylie region.
The interior minister has suggested arsonists lit the fires, but so far has not provided further details.

Al Jazeera’s Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
