Bombing in Algiers

At least 47 people have died in two bomb blasts in the Algerian capital, Algiers, officials have said.

The first explosion is reported to have happened in the Ben Aknoun district, near the supreme constitutional court.

That was followed shortly afterwards by a second blast at the United Nations offices in the Hydra neighbourhood.

A UN worker caught up in the Hydra attack told the BBC that part of the building was destroyed and it was feared people were trapped.

Dozens were wounded in the blasts, officials say.
