Algerian protesters heeded a presidential order over the coronavirus, and the pleas of some of their own leaders, by not staging their weekly demonstration against the ruling elite on Friday for the first time in over a year.

Algeria’s president Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Thursday ordered the security forces to enforce a ban on any public gathering as part of the government’s measures to contain the coronavirus, with 94 cases confirmed in the country so far.
