Algerian police have arrested Said Bouteflika, the youngest brother of former president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, and two former intelligence chiefs, Generals Bachir Athmane Tartag and Mohamed Mediene, Ennahar TV said on Saturday.

Said Bouteflika, who served as a top advisor to the presidency for more than a decade, had been Algeria's de facto ruler since his brother suffered a stroke in 2013, which left him in a wheelchair.

Massive ongoing protests calling for a radical change to Bouteflika's regime pushed the ailing president to resign on April 2, but demonstrators continue to demand the removal of all those linked the former administration.
