  Independence leader: Wall won't stop Western Sahara fight DAJLA REFUGEE CAMP, Algeria (AP) — The leader of the Western Sahara independence movement says that fighting with Morocco will continue across a long wall cutting through Africa’s vast desert until the international community delivers on an unfulfilled promise of self-determination for the Saharawi people. The United Nations considers Western Sahara as Africa’s last territory to be decolonized, but its envoys have failed to set the stage for a referendum on its future since a ceasefire was signed 30 years ago between Morocco, which had annexed it in 1975, and the independence-seeking Polisario Front.

Much of the history of Algeria has taken place on the fertile coastal plain of North Africa, which is often called the Maghreb (or Maghreb). North Africa served as a transit region for people moving towards

Tuesday, October 12, the Algiers court sentenced Said Bouteflika, younger brother and an influential councilor of the former president, two years in prison for hindering "the smooth running of justice". Several other politicians and powerful businessmen were arrested after the fall of the Abdelaziz Bouteflika regime in early April 2019, under the pressure of the manifestations of the Hirak and the army. They were placed in pre-trial or condemned detention in particular for corruption facts.

Algerian president demands 'total respect' from France

  Algerian president demands 'total respect' from France Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Sunday demanded France's "total respect", following a row over visas and critical comments from Paris about the North African country. On Sunday, Tebboune spoke publicly for the first time about the row, telling local media outlets the return of the Algerian ambassador to France was "conditional on total respect for the Algerian state".Last weekend, Algeria recalled its ambassador from Paris and banned French military planes from its airspace, which France regularly uses to reach its forces battling jihadists in the Sahel region to the south.

The Ancien Régime , also known as the Old Regime was the political and social system of the Kingdom of France from the Late Middle Ages (circa 15th century) until the French Revolution of 1789

The Algerian Civil War was a civil war in Algeria fought between the Algerian government and various Islamist rebel groups from 26 December 1991 (following a coup negating an Islamist electoral victory) to 8 February 2002.

In the majority of cases, the cacics of the Ancient Algerian regime are condemned for alleged facts of corruption, diversion, abuse of function or occult election campaign financing. These are dozens of ex-high political leaders, bosses and executives of Clan Bouteflika. They are now detained in El-Harrach prison in Algiers.

This is the case of two former first-ministers, Abdelmalek Sellal and his successor Ahmed Ouyahia . Both, who four times held the Prime Minister's position (twice each), were repeatedly sentenced for various malpractices.

In addition, seven ex-ministers are behind the bars. Among them Tayeb Lah, the former Minister of Justice, or Abdelghani Zaalane, former Minister of Transport and Ephemeral Campaign Director of the candidate Bouteflika for a fifth term. An eighth, Abdeslam Bouchareb, former Minister of Industry and Mines, was sentenced to twenty years in prison but fled abroad.

two generals also sleep in prison: Mohamed Medène, said Toufik, and Bachir Tartag, as well as two Secretaries General of the FLN, but also the leader of the National Police and many influential businessmen, as the head of the employer Ali Haddad or Mahieddine Tashkout, one of the largest automobile dealers in Algeria.
