yasmina khadira limogé

This another stanza in the very long song about the relationship of politicians and writers.

The Algerian writer Yasmina Khadra was in Cuba when it was made known by a decree from the Algerian president Abdelaziz Bouteflika that Khadra has been removed from his post as head of the Algerian Cultural Center in Paris, the capital city of France.

Khadira had made known at the end of 2013 his intention to run in the Algerian presidential elections.  Khadra had been leading the Algerian Cultural Center since November 2007.
