ALGIERS: Algerian human rights activist Fatiha Briki has been detained by authorities and no official reason has been given for her arrest, her family and a prisoners’ rights group said on Monday. Briki, a retired university teacher and a member of prisoners’ rights group CNLD, was arrested on Thursday and her home searched, according to the CNLD. "I believe that her work on behalf of detainees is the root cause for her arrest," Said Salhi, vice-president of the Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights (LADDH), said.
