More than 10,000 protesters marched against authorities in Algeria’s northeastern city of Bejaia on Saturday, organisers said, in the country’s latest rally inspired by neighbouring Tunisia.
Demonstrators marched peacefully in the city in Algeria’s Berber-speaking Kabylie region, shouting Tunisia-inspired slogans such as: “For a radical change of the regime!,” a lawmaker with the opposition Rally for Culture and Democracy (RCD), Mohamed Ikhervane, told AFP.
“The protest gathered more than 10,000 people,” said RCD leader Said Sadi, whose group organised the rally.
Police were out in force around the city but protesters dispersed calmly, Ikhervane said.
