Discussion: Pres Abdelaziz Bouteflika's offer denounced

Algerian Students determined to pursue Algeria's biggest anti-government protests in years boycotted classes on Monday to denounce an offer by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika not to serve a full term if re-elected. Hundreds of protesters took part in small demonstrations across the north African country, continuing almost two weeks of marches and rallies against the 82-year-old leader's plan to seek a fifth term. Footage published on social media shows large crowds walking through the streets chanting and raising their arms in the air. For more on this story we joined ON THE LINE by Ebrahim Deen, a researcher at the Afro-Middle East Centre, a research institute based in Johannesburg South Africa.
