Algeria gov't pays tribute to ex-President Bendjedid

ALGIERS--Algeria on Sunday paid tribute to former president Chadli Bendjedid, “father” of the country's multiparty system, who died of cancer 20 years after leaving office.

“Algeria has lost a mujahedeen (fighter) who was determined to rid the country of the ravages of colonialism and liberate his people from its injustices and recover the sovereignty of Algeria,” President Abdelaziz Bouteflika said.

Algeria has declared eight days of mourning for Bendjedid, 83, president from 1979 to 1992, who died on Saturday.
