Algeria refuses to allow Abbas to visit

Mahmoud Abbas, on his way back from Washington, stopped off in Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.

According to Palestine Today, however, Algeria refused to allow him to visit that country.

The reasons for Algeria's move were not clear, but the article says that a number of years ago Algeria gave a large sum of money to the PA - and then discovered that millions of dollars from their donation ended up in secret personal accounts owned by PA officials in Morocco.

Algeria is also reportedly not happy with the fact that Abbas only contacts them to demand money.
