The Roman Catholic Church says the Algerian authorities have ordered the closure of its charity, Caritas Algiers, after 60 years of work in the country.
Religious charities were due to be exempted from regulations requiring non-profit organisations to submit new documentation, but this never happened.
Algerian law guarantees freedom of religion, though places of worship and preachers must be licensed.
