Algeria Power Struggle

In this April 28, 2014 file photo, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, sitting in a wheelchair, listens after taking the presidential oath in Algiers. Algeria is in the grips of political intrigue, as the president nears death and rumors of coup attempts swirl. Now, the unprecedented firing of three top generals is generating fear that a power struggle within the regime will break into the open – unleashing a new cycle of the bloodshed that plagued the country in the 1990s.
