Cannes protest over Algeria film Hors la Loi

Breaking News

Hundreds of people have protested in Cannes against a film about Algeria's struggle for independence against France.

The film, Hors la Loi by French-Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb, opens at Cannes on Friday.

The demonstrators, who included right-wing politicians and French veterans, claim it is biased against France.

Algeria gained independence from France after a brutal eight-year war that ended in 1962.
