(World Cup) Algerian joy, clashes after win
(06-27 17:27)

Algeria's capital has exploded in fireworks and horn-honking joy after the national football team qualified for the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time.
Across the Mediterranean, celebrations by Algerians in former colonial ruler France were marred by minor clashes with police. French national police said on Friday that 74 people were detained around the country after overnight incidents.
In Marseille, youths climbed on signs and cars, waving Algerian green-and-white flags in triumph.
In the Algerian capital, the Algiers center was packed with jubilant youths as soon as the match ended in Brazil late Thursday in a 1-1 draw with Russia. That allowed Algeria to qualify for the round of 16, where it will meet Germany on Monday. --AP
