​The British Government is committed to supporting the freedom of people of all religions to practise their beliefs in peace and safety. We are aware of the closure of a church near Oran city on 9 November 2017. The church does not believe it has broken the law. Our Embassy in Algiers will be asking the Algerian authorities about this case.
