The new wave of violence, barely two weeks before the start of the Muslim holy month, also came before a speech planned today by Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia. He was expected to announce his resignation.

Muslim militants slashed the throats of seven people in an Algerian mountain town, authorities said Sunday, raising to 52 the death toll from the latest wave of violence. The embattled prime minister, in a televised state of the nation address Sunday before parliament, insisted that the nearly 7-year-old insurgency was under control. A brief government statement said the victims were killed "with savagery" Saturday night in the town of Merad, 60 miles west of Algiers, the capital.

Quietly threading their way through neighborhood streets near the legendary and labyrinthine Casbah, in twos and threes, they approached the raw outlines of the unfinished red-brick mosque. The men were bearded, the women wore scarves in a show of traditional Islamic modesty. Because all roads leading to the mosque in the heart of Algiers were cordoned off, they came on foot.
