Algeria ruling party turns on Bouteflika as new protests mount: he is “history” – World

ALGIERS (Reuters) – Thousand of protesters gathered in the Algerian capital on Friday demanding that President Abdelaziz Bouteflika step down, keeping up pressure after the ruling FLN party showed more signs of turning its back on him.

Bouteflika on Monday reversed a decision to stand for another term after mass protests against his rule, but stopped short of relinquishing office and says he will stay on until a new constitution is adopted.
