A handout picture provided by the Algerian Presidency Press Service, shows the official ceremony for receiving the remains of 24 Algerian resistance fighters decapitated during the French colonial conquest of the North African country, each in a coffin draped with the national flag, following their arrival at Algiers airport on a flight from France on July 3, 2020. To a military guard of honour and with President Abdelmajid Tebboune at the scene, the remains were flown in to Algiers on a Hercules C-130 transport plane, accompanied by Algerian fighters. France's return of the remains this weekend. France's 132 years of colonial rule, and the brutal eight-year war that ended it, have left a lasting legacy of often prickly relations between the two governments and peoples.  - === RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT "AFP PHOTO / HO / ALGERIAN PRESIDENCY PRESS SERVICE " - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS ===
