Algeria jails two former Prime Ministers over illicit dealings with telecoms company

An \\Algerian court has sentenced two former Prime Ministers to five years in prison on corruption charges.

Ahmed Ouyahia and Abdelmalek Sellal were accused of having had illicit dealings with the directors of a telecoms company.

The two men served in governments under President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who was forced from office by pro-democracy street protests last year.

Both the former prime ministers had already been convicted and jailed in an earlier corruption case.
