Algeria's former president Bouteflika dies

Former Algeria's head of state Abdelaziz Bouteflika (pictured) died at the age of 84, the president's palace announced.

Bouteflika led the Northern African country from 1999 to 2019. In 2013, he suffered a stroke, after which his public appearances became very rare.

Bouteflika was forced to resign from his post following months of protests against the alleged political corruption and electoral fraud.
