ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria’s former transport and public works minister Abdelghani Zaalane appeared before the supreme court on Wednesday as part of an investigation over corruption, state TV reported.

His appearance came shortly after a judge at the same court started questioning former Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia.
