In Algeria, interim President Abdelkader Bensalah announced the country will hold a presidential election on December 12. Longtime president Abdelaziz Bouteflika resigned in April following weeks of protests. Demonstrations have continued to this day. On Friday, tens of thousands marched demanding remaining members of the ruling elite also step down before any new elections. Elections planned for July were canceled after protesters said they would be controlled by the army and the ruling elite.
