Thousands of protesters have rallied in the main square of the Algerian capital for the 11th weekly mass demonstration in a row.
Weeks of demonstrations forced Bouteflika out of office on April 2 after 20 years in power. Protesters have continued mass demonstrations every Friday, demanding other members of the country’s elite also give way.
Chants of “we will not shut up” were heard as people called for the resignation of those in power a month after long-serving leader President Abdelaziz Bouteflika stepped down.
Slogans on banners included “you must go” and “thieves you have destroyed the country”
The protesters want free elections, due on 4 July, and an end to corruption, including the removal of all officials linked to the former president.
