In the Jurjura Range, after the death of Hervé Gourdel

Fehrat Bouda has travelled across the Jurjura Range where the French Hervé Gourdel has been executed by jihadists on September 14, 2014.

This range located in Algeria in the Kabyle area has craggy peaks above plunging valleys and narrow trails along high cliffs, very attracting for such a qualified mountaineer as Hervé Gourdel. His tragical end reminds of the local insecurity. Isolation and deep reliefs covered by caves and forests made these mountains perfect refuge for armed islamist groups such as Jund al-Khilafa (“Soldiers of Caliphate”), a group derived from AQIM, recently joined with Daech and executioners of the French hostage.

The photograph met those who have decided to whitstand against this terror statu quo. Demonstrations in the memory of Hervé Gourdel as seen here in Tizi Ouzou highlight Kabyle's exasperation toward general insecurity and the inability of Algerian government to cope with terrorism.
