Algeria's most famous cartoonist, Dilem, (right) has been given a one-year prison Dilem Bouteflika_2 sentence for a caricatue of Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika (left), the daily news-bulletin of the French weekly Nouvel Observateur reported today. The cartoon was published in Dilem's home base, the French-language Algers daily Liberte.

You can see a selection of Dilem's cartoons for the year 2005 by clicking here. And, here below is the cartoon for which Dilem was condemned (the caption reads, "Bouteflikka will speak to the people," and the balloons read, "Here is the people"; and "Essential, the people!"):

Oh yes, Doug, thanks for posting this. It's repression that Americans can do practically nothing about and actually pales next to our shenanigans at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo but thank you, thank you!

And btw -- how is it that a man so committed to free speech that he actually decorated one post with a cartoon equating Islam with terrorism hasn't said a peep about government and media attempts to suppress the latest ghastly revelations from Abu Ghraib?
