Prominent Algerian opposition leader detained
According to reports, he was taken into custody on Tuesday in an Algiers neighborhood.
The authorities have detained one of Algeria's most well-known opposition figures for an unspecified reason.
One of the most recognizable faces at large pro-democracy protests is Karim Tabbou, who is a member of the Hirak movement.
Protesters in Hirak, who pushed longtime leader Abdelaziz Bouteflika to resign in 2019, are calling for a comprehensive change of the nation's political structure.
In Algeria, dozens of people have been imprisoned for having connections to the movement.
