ALGIERS – Two policemen were wounded and five demonstrators were arrested for their opposition during the night of Monday to Tuesday to the demolition of illegal constructions in the region of El-Oued (650 km southeast of Algiers), said Wednesday the APS.
The two policemen were slightly injured while trying to disperse a gathering of people challenging a decision by local authorities to demolish illegal buildings erected on a land belonging to the state, the source said.
The police arrested five protesters who tried to set fire to a post office, the source said.
In Algeria, housing difficulties often lead to protests, which sometimes degenerate into riots. Several poorly housed immolated themselves by fire or attempted or threatened to do.
Earlier this year riots against the cost of living have caused five deaths and over 800 wounded.
