Shortages in staple food and heating gas.
“The cold snap (there’s that word again), which has swept much of Europe and even North Africa, has killed dozens and caused major disruptions in Algeria.
“A communique from the National Gendarmerie said 38 roads have been blocked due to heavy and constant snowfall, leaving several villages in the northern mountainous areas isolated.
“In these areas, heating gas and staple food are running out, and there are many blackouts because of power failures, the communique said.
“Since the bad weather began, the death toll from the harsh weather in Algeria has reached 48.”
