VIDEO: Algiers: parade in honor of the 60th anniversary of independence

July 5 Algeria celebrates 60 years of independence from France. The French occupation of Algerian soil lasted for more than a century, from the invasion of the capital in 1830 to the war of independence, which ended in a fierce battle in 1962. “A Glorious History and a New Era” is the motto chosen for the celebration of this important anniversary.
