A landslide victory for the 'invisible candidate' in Algeria

Algeria votes to keep Abdelaziz Bouteflika as president, but opposition politicians cry foul and say they will not accept the results.

Despite ailing health and being confined to a wheelchair, Abdelaziz Bouteflika won a fourth term in office by a landslide. He took over 80% of the vote, according to official results. His main opponent, Ali Benflis, has cried foul and says he will not accept the tally.

Meanwhile, refugees at a UN compound in South Sudan are attacked. At least 48 are killed as clashes in the country continue despite a ceasefire signed between warring sides back in January. Africa News speaks to UN officials to find out exactly what happened.
