The death toll rose to more than 10 people in two bombs blasted at a railway station in Algiers, the capital city of Algeria, the Arabian language al Jazeera TV channel reported on Sunday evening.

A French railway engineer working at the station in Beni Amrane, some 100 km east of the capital, was hit dead with his Algerian driver in their car by a remote control bomb, a local security official was quoted as saying.

A second bomb triggered by a remote control exploded when rescuers were rushing to the scene, wounding dozens of others, the official said on condition of anonymity.

So far, no individual or organization has claimed responsibility for the two blasts.

Earlier on Thursday, a roadside bomb killed six soldiers in the city of Boumerdes, east of the Algerian capital.
