Police use tear gas against protesters in Algiers, People Injured on Both Sides

ALGIERS - Anti-government demonstrations in Algeria continue for the eighth Friday in a row as public discontent with the interim government, headed by associates of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, continues to grow.

According to an eye witness, both protesters and police have been injured amid the ongoing protests in the city of Algiers. The police have used tear gas against the protesters.

The Algerian people want a genuine change from the old guard who have ruled the country since independence in 1962.
