Algeria students defy Bouteflika offer to shorten new term in power

Bouteflika's offer appeared aimed at undermining the youthful wave of opposition against his 20-year rule and shore up an establishment dominated by aging revolutionary stalwarts of the 1954-62 independence war against France. Shops were open in Algiers but students did not show up for classes at Bab Ezzouar University in Algiers, the biggest in the oil-producing North African country. Several other university campuses in the capital Algiers were also deserted.
