In the context of the growing role of Islamism in the region, Algeria is increasingly the scene of more terror incidents by Islamist movements, particularly al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). In 2014 the very ill Abdelaziz Bouteflika was re-elected for a fourth term as president, in a country that knows no fair and free elections. Persecution in Algeria is shaped by Islamic Oppression (blended with Dictatorial Paranoia). Pressure on Christians is highest in the private and family spheres, followed by the national and church spheres.
