RAW: Algerian police fires tear gas at protesters calling for change of government

Hundreds of people took to the streets chanting. The demonstration was part of Friday protests against what protesters believe is a possible manoeuvring of the government to remain in power.

82-year-old president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who was rarely seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2013, announced his resignation on April 2, after the army chief called for his resignation.

Algerian parliament then appointed former President of the Council of Nations Abdelkader Bensalah as the country’s interim president for the next 90 days.

Bensalah has since announced a new presidential election, scheduled for July 4.
