Le Soir d'Algérie (meaning Algerian Evening in English; ISSN 1111-0074) is a French-language evening newspaper based in Algiers, Algeria.

History and profile[edit]

Le Soir d'Algérie was established in 1990.[1] Its circulation reached 150,000 copies following the first seven months.[2] The paper is privately owned[1] and is headquartered in Algiers.[3] In the 1990s and at the beginning of the 2000s the paper had an independent political stance.[4][5]

In August 2003 Le Soir d'Algérie temporarily ceased publication due to its debt to state-run printing presses.[6] Fouad Boughanim served as the editor-in-chief of the paper.[2]
