Several people including an opposition member of parliament have been injured in the Algerian capital after police blocked a banned protest.

The opposition RCD party was stopped from leaving its headquarters – so leader Said Sadi addressed supporters from a balcony as a helicopter hovered overhead.

He called for President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to suffer the same fate as Tunisia’s Ben Ali.

Riot police prevented the crowd from marching to the centre of Algiers and made a number of arrests.

Authorities had refused permission for the rally saying it threatened public order.
