ALGIERS - Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has a "health crisis" and has been told by his doctor to rest, a private Algerian television station reported on Saturday in a news flash.

Bouteflika's health is a central factor in the stability of an oil-exporting country of 37 million emerging from a long conflict between government forces and Islamist insurgents.

Ennahar TV provided no detailed information on the president's condition. Bouteflika, 75, was elected in 1999.
