ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria's supreme court on Monday ordered two former ministers to be taken into custody over corruption allegations under former president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, state television reported.
Ex-public works and transport minister Abdelghani Zaalane and former labour minister Mohamed El Ghazi are the latest senior officials to be detained since protesters earlier this year demanded the prosecution of people involved in corruption and the departure of the ruling elite.
