According to the Algerian newspaper, the vendors told police officers that the man who had sold them the clothes was a resident of the capital Algiers.


Officers arrived at the shopping center the day after New Year's after receiving information according to which vendors were selling clothing items with "Made in Israel" labels on them.


El-Khabar said they were instructed by the attorney general to confiscate the clothing items and interrogate the vendors, who denied knowledge of the products' origins.


The alleged salesman from Algiers has been arrested, the report said. 


A source told the newspaper "we cannot rule out the possibility that an international ring smuggled the Israeli clothes into the country and that its operatives are being assisted by Algerian vendors based in several districts."
