Hundreds protest in central Algiers against disputed election

ALGIERS (Reuters) - Hundreds of people protested in central Algiers on Thursday against the presidential election hours after polls opened, with demonstrators calling for a boycott of a vote they regard as a charade.

Protesters also marched in towns in the Kabylie region on Thursday, where some polling stations have been closed, witnesses and residents said.
