Algeria-Morocco tensions escalate

Algeria closed its airspace to all Moroccan civil and military aircraft, the Algerian Presidency said last week, less than a month after it severed diplomatic ties with its neighbour. The government could take further measures against Morocco, an Algerian foreign ministry official told Reuters, without specifying what actions it could take. Tensions between the two countries were inflamed earlier this year when Algiers accused Morocco of backing an Algerian separatist organization.

Tunisia’s president has given himself sweeping new powers, saying last week that he will overrule parts of the constitution and rule by decree, Reuters reports. President Kais Saied has been consolidating his grip on power since he dismissed the prime minister and parliament and assumed executive power under emergency measures this summer.
