A former prime minister of Algeria, Ahmed Ouyahia has appeared in the country’s Supreme Court as a series of investigations into high level corruption continues.

Corruption investigators have since been targeting senior officials and businessmen who were close to Mr Bouteflika during his 20 years in power, according to BBC.
