What does the election mean for Algeria's youth?

Algerians are voting in elections in which incumbent President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is seeking a fourth term.

Despite not personally campaigning, Mr Bouteflika, is expected to beat his five other opponents.

His re-election bid has spawned a protest movement called Barakat, meaning "Enough", which have been holding demonstrations around the country.

Carine Torbey reports.
