Protests have continued across many cities in Algeria as demonstrators called on President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to leave office.
A sea of demonstrators, young and old, had thronged the streets chanting “Bye, bye Bouteflika!” and “Peaceful! Peaceful!” Many were draped in the Algerian flag and carried placards and banners.
Local officials say a 60-year-old man who suffered a heart attack died during the country’s biggest anti-government demonstrations since the Arab Spring eight years ago.
Reports say several protesters and policemen were wounded during clashes in Algiers, with state television news website, TSA putting the number of wounded at 63, citing official figures. It said 45 people were detained.
