Fourteen Algerian policemen have been injured in renewed clashes between Berbers and Arabs in Ghardaia, around 600 kilometers south of the Algerian capital Algiers, a security source said on Monday.

Scores of youths torched a police vehicle in Ghardaia late Sunday, leaving two policemen seriously injured, a security spokesman said.

Several homes were burnt down in the violence.

At least seven people had been killed in sporadic sectarian clashes between Berbers and Arabs in the city last December.
