Algeria itself has become so violent that even 55 journalists have been killed in the three-year-old civil war, two of them since Sunday. Late Monday, 27-year-old Saida Djebaili was shot several times in the head in Algiers. "The violence will intensify as the November 16 election approaches," reports Lara Marlowe. "The insurgents are going to do everything in their power to disrupt the election, which, if it is held, will be like Iraq's election of Saddam. The military will undoubtedly maintain control of the government. Although the guerrillas have been extremely vicious, the government has been just as oppressive and violent."
