Algeria’s ex-President, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, dies at 84

Former Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has died, the presidency said on Friday, more than two years after he stepped down under pressure from mass protests and the army.

Bouteflika, a veteran of Algeria’s war for independence, had ruled the North African country for two decades before his resignation in April 2019 after street demonstrations rejecting his plan to seek a fifth term despite being ill at the time.

He had rarely been seen in public before his departure since a stroke in 2013.

Bouteflika was 84 years old.
