Is Africa starting to choke on China's lending glut?
The family of Algerian journalist Said Chitour has been desperately trying to secure his release since he was arrested on espionage charges.
On 5 June, as Chitour was returning from a trip to Spain, he was arrested by the intelligence services and taken to El Harrach, the main prison in Algiers.
He is accused of giving sensitive information about Algeria to foreign officials, a charge he denies.
If he is found guilty he could face up to 25 years behind bars.
The campaign group Reporters Without Borders said it was “appalled” by the way he has been treated and has called for his immediate release.
The government has not responded to repeated requests for comment.Source: BBC
