Algerians hold biggest anti-Bouteflika protests

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Hundreds of thousands of people crammed into central Algiers on Friday (March 15) in the biggest protests against President Abdelaziz Bouteflika's 20-year rule since unrest began last month.

Protesters of all ages, including children, marched through the streets, draped in Algerian flags and holding up banners demanding Bouteflika's resignation.

Police in the capital had also blocked streets leading to government offices and to parliament, they said Bouteflika on Monday (March 10) reversed a decision to stand for another term after mass protests against him, but stopped short of relinquishing office and says he will stay on until a new constitution is adopted.

Algerians quickly rejected his offer and demanded that the 82-year-old president hand over power to a young generation of leaders who can create jobs and stamp out corruption
