Gendarmerie to return to Tizi-Ouzou

Ech Chourouk (p. 3): Hocine Mazouz, governor of Tizi-Ouzou, announces that the gendarmerie will return to all stations in the wilaya, following a petition signed by 90,000 people asking for their return. The withdrawal of the gendarmerie was a key demand of the arouch movement, who are not pleased; they have reiterated their demand for "a complete, final withdrawal" of all units of the gendarmerie and punishment of gendarmes involved in events of the "Black Spring".
