Algeria has foiled a planned terror attack by the Daesh Takfiri group on a shopping mall east of the country, an Algerian newspaper reported Wednesday.

El Massa, a government newspaper, reported that militants linked to Daesh had plans to carry out the attack on Park Mall in Setif, located about 300 kilometers (186 miles) south of the capital, Algiers.

The paper claimed that the mall is frequented by people during the holy month of Ramadan, saying it attracts about 40,000 shoppers a year.
