Algeria's Bouteflika back home from treatment in France
President Abdelaziz Bouteflika returned home to Algeria on Tuesday to convalesce, three months after he was rushed to hospital in France suffering from a stroke.


The presidency said the veteran leader would "continue a period of rest and rehabilitation" but did not say when he would resume state activities. Bouteflika, 76, has ruled over the North African oil and gas producer for more than a decade and has not said if he plans to run for another term in a presidential election in April 2014. (Reuters)
