THE LEVANT NEWS — ALGIERS: Hocine Ait-Ahmed, one of the fathers of Algeria’s struggle for independence from France and then a longtime opposition figure, died in Lausanne, Switzerland Wednesday, his Socialist Forces Front party said.

Ait-Ahmed, 89, was the last of the nine so-called “sons of Toussaint,” who launched the uprising in November 1954.

The cause of death was not given, but Ait-Ahmed was said to have been ill.
