A picture of 55-year old French tourist and moutain-guide Herve Gourdel, who was kidnapped on September 21 while hiking in Algeria's Djurdjura National Park, some 80 kilometres south of Tizi Ouzou, and beheaded three days laterThe Algerian army said on Tuesday it had killed the head of a militant group that beheaded a French tourist after it had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group. The body of Abdelmalek Gouri, who claimed responsibility for the beheading of Frenchman Herve Gourdel in September, was identified after an operation in the town of Isser “that allowed us to eliminate three terrorists”, the army said. An operation lasting three months had seen 3,000 Algerian troops mobilised to catch Gourdel’s killers. The confirmation of Gouri’s death came after the Nahar private television network said soldiers had killed him and two other militants late on Monday in Isser, about 60 kilometres (37 miles) east of Algiers.
