Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is expected to land in Algeria on Sunday after spending two weeks in a Swiss hospital.

Bouteflika has been in Geneva for medical treatment since February 24.

Ennahar television reported that a government with Bouteflika on board landed at Geneva’s Cointrin airport on Sunday and was not expected to depart in time to fly him home by noon.

The president, who is confined to a wheelchair, has rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2013.

There have been massive protests in Algeria since February 22 denouncing Bouteflika’s plans to extend his rule in the April 18 election.
