One day after Algeria recalled its ambassador from Paris, the country has banned French military planes from flying over its territory, French army military sources say, as the diplomatic row between the two countries intensifies.

Algeria, responding to comments attributed to President Emmanuel Macron by a French newspaper, is accusing France of unacceptable interference in its affairs.

Macron was quoted as saying the former French colony was ruled by a “political-military system” with an official history that was based not on truth, but on hatred of France.

Last week, France cut the number of visas it issues for citizens of Algeria and other North African countries.
