Algeria closes gyms, cultural and leisure venues, beaches and used car markets, reimposes a curfew from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., and bans all gatherings in 35 provinces, amid the rapid spread of the Delta variant.
A roadside bomb kills five civilians and wounds three others in Tebessa Province, Algeria. It is the deadliest attack on civilians in Algeria in recent years. In a separate incident, a militant is shot dead by the military in neighbouring Khenchela Province.
Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia shut their borders to so-called economic migrants, those not coming from war-torn countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, or Iraq, leaving thousands stranded at Balkan border crossings.

The Parliament of Libya orders the closure of Libya's southern borders with Chad, Sudan, Algeria and Niger while declaring seven southern regions restricted military areas to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and goods.
