Frankrikes president Emmanuel Macron har å franska statens vägnar erkänt att franska soldater torterade och mördade Ali Boumendjel, en förgrundsfigur i den algeriska självständighetsrörelsen FLN, under Algerietrevolten 1954-62.

Medgivandet framfördes under ett möte med fyra av Boumendjels barnbarn och motsäger den tidigare officiella versionen, nämligen att FLN-mannen begick självmord.

Redan 2001 skrev den dåvarande franske underrättelsechefen i Alger, Paul Aussaresses, i en bok att han och hans "dödspatrull" torterade och mördade Boumendjel och andra fångar med den dåvarande justitieministern François Mitterrands (senare Frankrikes president) goda minne.
