Thousands protest in Algeria as Bouteflika stays defiant

Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika issued a warning on Thursday to protesters who have taken to the streets in thousands to demand an end to his 20-year rule. In the latest demonstration, hundreds of lawyers rallied in downtown Algiers as momentum gathered in the protests. Bouteflicka, 82 and ailing, has not spoken in public since suffering a stroke in 2013.
