State prosecutors in Algeria announced that they have banned individuals linked with corruption from leaving the country amidst reports that Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika might resign this week.
After Algerian protesters rejected President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s offer to step down after one year should he be re-elected, his latest announcement that he will extend his fourth term is being met with more anger.
Tunisian officials predict that approximately 8 million tourists will spend holidays in Tunisia this year. Of these 8 million tourists, the officials expect at least 2.2-2.7 Algerian tourists this season. The boost in the nation's security has increased the country's tourism earnings by 42%.
