More than 60 lawmakers walked out of the inaugural session of parliament in Algeria, in protest at alleged fraud in recent elections.

The MPs, mostly from an Islamist coalition, waved banners that said "Say 'no' to fraud", before leaving after a roll call of new members.

The party claims the polls two weeks ago were fixed in favour of the ruling FLN party and its coalition partners.

Algeria was one of the few states in the region to avoid unrest last year.
