The number of wildfire victims in Algeria has grown to 26 from eight previously reported, according to the interior ministry.

The wildfires are raging in the mountains east of Algeria, and the victims come from the provinces of Al Taref and Setif.

Firefighters and aircraft were still battling multiple blazes that were threatening residences.

At least 65 people were slain in the Kabylie region a year ago.
