Algeria Unrest

Hundreds of demonstrators of the Berber community stage a protest in front of a walled area where Algier’s newspapers are headquartered in support of Berbers in the southern Ghardaia region where at least 22 people have died in ethnic unrest, in Algiers, Algeria, Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Authorities say ethnic clashes have left at least 22 people dead around Algeria’s southern oasis city of Ghardaia, more than 600 kilometers (375 miles) south of Algiers, prompting the president to call an urgent security meeting. The Berbers and the Arabs in Ghardaia had for centuries lived together in harmony, but tensions started in late 2013 when a Berber shrine was vandalized. (AP Photo/Sidali Djarboub)
