Algeria, Morocco Reacts To Visa Slash By France

Algeria and Morocco have reacted with anger to France’s decision to slash the number of visas for their citizens.

France announced it would halve the number of visas available to Moroccans and Algerians and reduce by a third those available to Tunisians.

It accused the three North African countries of failing to co-operate over the return of their nationals denied visas by France.

Algeria summoned the French ambassador to formally protest against the move.
