Algeria 1991-2002: the ‘dark decade’: there was a political and democratic crisis and a deep crisis in Islam, which cost the lives of 150 000 people, mainly Algerian Muslims. Among them were 19 religious men and women, who had committed themselves to this country. They gave their lives for Algériens, they chose to stay and die with them. Pierre Claverie, Dominican Bishop of Oran, was amongst them.
Born in Algeria when it was still French, he resolved to commit his life to that of Algerians after their independence and to go out to meet his neighbours. He became a friend of Algerians, a friend of Muslims. He chose to go where the Lord goes, on the fracture lines of humanity. He was assassinated at the door of his bishop’s residence on August 1, 1996 with Mohamed Bouchikhi, a young Algerian who had brought him back from the airport.
