Algeria’s ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika travelled to Geneva on Sunday for a “routine medical check,” his office announced.

Bouteflika, 79, suffered a stroke in 2013 that has impeded his mobility and speech.

In December, he underwent two days of medical tests at a cardiology unit in France, AFP reported.
