Algerian president to return home from France Tuesday: report

|Blog ---
ALGIERS,- Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika who has been hospitalized in France since late April, is expected to arrive in his country on Tuesday, local media reported.

Citing French media, the local TSA news website indicated that a presidential aircraft carrying Bouteflika took off from Paris at around 1:30 p.m. local time (1230 GMT), and is due to land at a military airport near Algiers within a couple of hours.

Ennahar TV reported that Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal has cut short his visit to Tizi Ouzou province and headed to the airport to receive Bouteflika.

However, no official source has confirmed the return of the Algerian president.

The 76-year-old leader who suffered a minor stroke, had been receiving treatment at the Val-de-Grace military hospital in Paris before being transferred to the Institution des Invalides for convalescence and rehabilitation.

Bouteflika appeared on TV in mid June for the first time since his hospitalization as Algerian officials have been reassuring about his health, despite media reports saying that he will not be able to run the country.

The president's stroke triggered debate in the country's political arena, as some radical opponents have urged to hold early election to elect a new president.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
