Algerian police broke up a rare anti-government protest on Wednesday, a day before elections that look set to give President Abdelaziz Bouteflika a fourth term in office although he is still recovering from a stroke. Small groups of demonstrators from Barakat - the name means "Enough" - tried to hold a sit-in in downtown Algiers before uniformed police surrounded them and dragged them off. The ruling Front de Liberation Nationale (FLN) and the army have been the main influence on the North African state's politics since independence from France in 1962. "We are just peacefully demonstrating, we are not calling for a revolution or trying to make trouble." Police dispersed several small groups of protesters, some waving Algeria's green and white flag.
