Algeria To ‘Expel Thousands Of Migrants’


Algeria has begun the process of deporting thousands of migrants from other African states who have allegedly been living on its territory illegally, a human right organisation says.

About 1,400 sub-Saharan Africans, mainly West Africans, have been taken from their homes in Algiers by riot police since Thursday, according to the Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights (ALDHR) .

Pregnant women and children are among the migrants.

The ALDHR says some have been injured and others have been taken to a holding centre just outside Algiers.

The Algerian authorities warned in late September that they intended to expel tens of thousands of sub-Saharan migrants.

There have recently been clashes between migrants and locals in southern Algeria – the result of what seemed to be pressure for jobs.
