Algerians out in full force against President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.
Tens of thousands of Algerians protested across the country on Friday to demand that the 82-year-old leader renounce his bid for a fifth term.

Bouteflika has made few public appearances or speeches since suffering a stroke in 2013, fuelling speculation that the country is effectively run by his brother and adviser, Saïd Bouteflika, along with the head of the military, Ahmed Gaïd Salah, and a cabal of opaque political and military officials known as le pouvoir or “the power”.
