An Algerian Foreign Ministry official has categorically denied implication in mercenary activities in Libya, according to state-run APS news agency.

Asked about the alleged presence of Algerian mercenaries in Libya, the chief communication officer at the Foreign Ministry Amar Belani denied such "slanderous allegations," which he described as a disinformation campaign meant to implicate Algerian authorities in mercenary activities.

Libyan rebels said on Sunday they had captured 15 Algerian mercenaries and killed another three during fierce fighting in the eastern town of Ajdabiya.

Rebels regularly denounce the presence of mercenaries, particularly from Africa, among the forces loyal to the embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
