Algerian police broke up a rare anti-government protest on Wednesday, a day before elections that look set to give President Abdelaziz Bouteflika a fourth term in office although he is still recovering from a stroke. Small groups of demonstrators from Barakat - the name means "Enough" - tried to hold a sit-in in downtown Algiers before uniformed police surrounded them and dragged them off. The ruling Front de Liberation Nationale (FLN) and the army have been the main influence on the North African state's politics since independence from France in 1962. "We are just peacefully demonstrating, we are not calling for a revolution or trying to make trouble." Police dispersed several small groups of protesters, some waving Algeria's green and white flag.

Separatists attacked a base of the Ukrainian national guard in an eastern city overnight and, in shooting that ensued, three of them were killed, the interior minister said on Thursday. The minister, Arsen Avakov, said in a post on Facebook that an armed group of about 300 attacked the base in Mariupol on the Sea of Azov with guns and petrol bombs. National guard members first fired warning shots but then opened fire as the attack continued, Avakov said "According to preliminary data, three attackers were killed, 13 wounded and 63 detained," Avakov said. That would make the attack, which occurred on the eve of international four-way talks in Geneva on the crisis in Ukraine, the deadliest since separatist rebellions broke out in Russian-speaking eastern areas of Ukraine over 10 days ago.

Ukrainians sit on armoured personnel carriers as they are blocked by armed pro-Russia supporters in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk on April 16, 2014Russia and Ukraine sit down for high-stakes talks in Geneva on Thursday, as Interior Minister Arsen Avakov says Ukrainian troops killed three people and wounded 13 while repelling an overnight attack on their base. As tensions simmered, NATO announced that it is deploying more forces in eastern Europe, and called for Russia to stop "destabilising" Ukraine, which has been in deep turmoil since the ouster of pro-Kremlin president Viktor Yanukovych in February.
