On May 13, the privately-owned news website L’Avant-Garde said that Algerian readers were unable to access their reporting. On May 11, online news outlet Le Matin d’Algérie released a statement saying that the website had been inaccessible for several days; local news website DZvid separately reported online that since April 22 their website has only been available using virtual private network (VPN) software to bypass local censorship. CPJ was able to access L’Avant-Garde, Le Matin d’Algérie, and DZvid from the United States in mid-May.
