Algeria protests over anthem slur
Algeria has protested against an article in a UK newspaper which proclaimed that its national anthem was one of the worst in the world.
Algeria’s Foreign Ministry has objected to an article in The Telegraph which said the Algerian anthem was the fifth worst in the world, and has lodged a complaint with the newspaper’s management.
"[Algeria's] Embassy in London has filed a strongly-worded protest to the editorship of the newspaper,” Algerian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Amman Belani was quoted as saying by the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
As of Monday, the link to the original article at the The Telegraph’s website appeared to have been deleted.
