THENIA, Algeria, Jan 29 (Reuters) - A car bomb attack on a police station killed two people and wounded 23 in a town east of Algiers on Tuesday, the second such bombing in the OPEC member in a month, the interior ministry said.

Some residents said the blast in Thenia appeared to be a suicide attack, the tactic used in a devastating twin bombing in the capital of the north African country on Dec. 11 that killed at least 41 people including 17 U.N. staff.

El Watan newspaper said police on Monday shot dead a suspected senior member of the rebel group that planned the Dec. 11 attacks and arrested four other members of the group near the village of Corso east of Algiers.

The group had been preparing another suicide bombing in Algiers, the independent French-language daily said. Corso, like Thenia, is in the Boumerdes region on the edge of Kabylie.

The daily said police had seized a truck and explosives. The truck had been bought in Tidjelabine village, where the vehicles used on Dec. 11 were also purchased.

A police spokesman could not immediately be reached. The police and army rarely comment on newspaper stories.

The bombing on Tuesday in Thenia 55 km (34 miles) east of the capital ripped much of the front wall off a three-storey police building and badly damaged nearby shops and a restaurant.

"The explosion happened at 6.25 a.m. (0525 GMT)
