Algeria protests: Partial strike under way in the capital

A partial strike across the country is also under way and expected to last for five days.

Students have again been out protesting against President Abdelaziz Bouteflika in the capital, Algiers.

They are vowing to continue the rallies, despite university and college campuses being closed early to try and stop them from voicing their anger.
