The GIA also bitterly opposes French President Jacques Chirac's scheduled meeting next month with Algerian President Zamine Zeroual at the U.N.

Earlier this week, the GIA reportedly said it would target French journalists, just as it has targeted Algerian newsmen and intellectuals back home." Sancton reports that the GIA has also said that it will not stop the bombing campaign until French President Jacques Chirac personally converts to Islam.
