Bouteflika Likely to Return Home as Government Plane Lands in Switzerland

A plane that transported ill Algerian president Abdelaziz Bouteflika to Switzerland for treatment two weeks ago has returned to Geneva, news agencies reported.

A Reuters witness and an AFP photographer saw the Gulfstream executive jet land at the Geneva's Cointrin airport.

Bouteflika, in power since 1999, will return to a troubled country where massive protests began after he had announced plans to extend his rule in the April 18 election.
