Algeria protests: What's behind them?

Tens of thousands have taken to the streets in Algeria after President Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced that he would seek a fifth-term in office.

Mr Bouteflika later said that he would step down early if re-elected, but the protests have continued.

Presidential elections are scheduled to be held on 18 April, 2019.
