Algeria's ruling party backs protesters -state radio

ALGIERS, March 20 (Reuters) - Algeria’s ruling FLN party said on Wednesday it fully supports protesters, the state news agency reported, dealing one of the heaviest blows to President Abdelaziz Bouteflika since mass demonstrations against his rule began nearly a month ago.

The party also called for dialogue after a meeting of senior leaders.
