ALGIERS: Algerians were unable to access social media accounts on Sunday as students sat for national exams in the North African country where authorities are cracking down on cheating.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp were inaccessible, an AFP journalist said, while the internet faced disruptions across the country.
The move came a day after the Justice Ministry announced that a teenager had been sentenced to one year in jail for having shared the results of an Arabic-language test online.
