In Algeria, hundreds of thousands of protesters returned to the streets of the capital Algiers after Friday prayers, calling on leaders of an interim government to resign and for sweeping democratic reforms. The protests come less than three weeks after longtime President Abdelaziz Bouteflika resigned amid a popular uprising. Algeria’s military has promised national elections on July 4; protesters are demanding an overthrow of Algeria’s entire ruling elite, who have been in power since the country gained independence in 1962.
