France acknowledges brutal rule in Algeria

Published: 12.20.12, 12:44 / Israel News

French President Francois Hollande has acknowledged the "unjust" and "brutal" nature of France's occupation of Algeria for 132 years, but stopped short of apologizing for the past as many Algerians have demanded.


On the second day of his state visit to this North African nation, he told the two houses of parliament on Thursday that "I recognize the suffering the colonial system has inflicted" on the Algerian people. (AP)
