A general view shows a computer screen displaying the front covers of two newspapers that were censored for reporting that Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has fallen into a coma three weeks after being hospitalised in Paris, raising speculation about his well-being, at the newspapers' office in Algiers on May 19, 2013. Hichem Aboud, who heads the opposition French-language Mon Journal and the Arabic Djaridati, said authorities demanded that two pages devoted to Bouteflika's health be removed from the Sunday edition, adding that he refuses 'self-censorship.'
