State television reported that former Algerian prime minister Ahmed Ouyahia was questioned by prosecutors on April 30th in an investigation into alleged corruption including the misuse of public funds.

Ouyahia is the latest prominent figure to be caught up in a widening probe into alleged graft in the inner circle of Abdelaziz Bouteflika since the longtime president was forced to step down in early April, according to AFP.
