Algerian official: Protest ban ‘not on agenda’ over coronavirus

ALGIERS (Reuters) – It is “not on the agenda” to ban public protests in Algeria over the coronavirus, a health ministry official told a news conference on Wednesday after the country announced its first confirmed case of the disease.

Mass protests have been taking place in the capital Algiers and other cities twice a week for over a year, with protesters demanding wholesale political change.
