PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil, June 22 (Reuters) - Algeria led South

Korea 3-0 at halftime after totally dominating a World Cup Group

H match on Sunday in which they also spurned several chances.

Algeria took the lead in the 26th minute when striker Islam

Slimani ran on to a long upfield pass and held off two Korean

defenders before guiding the ball past onrushing goalkeeper Jung

Sung-ryong.

The North Africans doubled their lead just two minutes later

when Rafik Halliche headed home a corner from Abdelmoume Djabou

and added a third in the 38th minute when a Slimani pass found

Djabou inside the box and the attacking midfielder swept a left-

foot shot into the corner of the net.
