Algerians mark one year of protests with fresh demonstrations
Issued on: Modified:
For the 52nd consecutive week, thousands of Algerians have taken to the streets to call for a complete overhaul of the ruling elite. It's been a year since the protest movement began. Also, the commission looking into the bloody attack on protesters in Sudan last year has finished gathering evidence from witnesses. More than a hundred people were killed when security forces opened fire on a sit-in in Khartoum last June. And the seventh edition of the Kinshasa Book Festival kicks off this Friday, but access to books remains difficult in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
