Scores wounded during mass protest in Algerian capital

The Algerian mass protest at the country’s capital against ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s bid for a fifth term in office, turned bloody weekend, when over 100 people were injured in clashes, medical sources said on Saturday.

The sources at Mustapha Pacha hospital in Algiers said some were wounded by stones and rubber bullets while others suffered from suffocation as a result of tear gas fired by security forces on Friday.

“Hundreds of thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Algiers for the third Friday running to demonstrate against Bouteflika’s re-election bid.

“Large protests were held in the provinces of Batna, Bouira, Skikda and M’Sila,’’ local media reported.

According to the Directorate of the National Security, some 195 people were detained on Friday by security forces, which added that 112 police officers had been injured during the protests.

Since suffering a stroke in 2013, Bouteflika has been rarely seen in public.

The wheelchair-bound president travelled to Switzerland on Feb. 24 for medical check-up.
