A bomb has exploded in front of a police compound in Algeria, killing three people and wounding five others, officials say.
The attack happened in the town of Zemmouri, about 50km (31 miles) east of the capital, Algiers.
It is the latest in a series of bombs attacks in Algeria that have killed more than 50 people in the past week.
The militant group calling itself Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said it was responsible for the earlier blasts.
In the latest attack, the bomb was placed in a plastic bag at the entrance to the compound where police officers and their families live, Algeria's security forces say.
They said two people had to have their legs amputated after the incident.
So far no group has claimed the responsibility for the attack.
