TEHRAN, Mar 24 - Hundreds of thousands of Algerians took the street of the capital Algiers on Friday, to demand the immediate resignation of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The protesters are taking a stand after the country's president announced that he would withdraw his bid for a fifth term in office but stopped short of stepping down, delaying the country's presidential elections slated for April 18.

Bouteflika's announcement came following weeks of mass demonstrations against his re-election bid and alleged plans to extend his 20-year rule.
