One of Algeria’s best known opposition leaders has been detained by the authorities for unknown reasons.
Karim Tabbou has become one of the most recognisable faces during mass pro-democracy rallies – organised by the Hirak movement.
He’s reported to have been arrested in a suburb of Algiers on Tuesday.
Hirak protesters – who forced long-term President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to step down in 2019 – are demanding a sweeping overhaul of the country’s system of government.
Dozens of people have been detained in Algeria over links to the movement.
