Unrelenting hot weather, which has reached 50C in the shade, is causing mayhem across Algeria.
A drought is also affecting southern Europe
Thirteen people have died of sunstroke - most of them elderly people. Numerous forest fires have broken out. On Sunday, 28 new blazes were reported.
The heatwave has been going on since Saturday, and the whole country has been affected.
Some fires in remote mountain regions are said to have been caused by army bombardments of Islamist hideouts.
This is not the first time Algeria has been affected by soaring temperatures.
Last year, dozens of people died during a fierce heatwave.
Just six months ago, the worst snowfalls in more than 50 years paralysed Algeria's capital, Algiers.
Much of southern Europe, including Spain and Portugal, is facing one of the most severe heatwaves on record.
