Hundreds of lawyers protested in Algiers on Thursday against the decision taken by Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to seek a fifth term in office.
Footage shows protesting lawyers - many donning their legal robes - pushing through police barriers as they reportedly headed to the constitutional council building.
The national association of lawyers has reportedly demanded that authorities delay the election and establish a transitional government.
Demonstrations in Algeria were triggered by the announcement by the 82-year-old Bouteflika that he would seek re-election in the April 18 presidential vote.
