    You are righ, Ouargla is a dangerous area for British citizens, in fact anyone who is not Algerian. Frankly every time you go to any where in Algeria you are at risk but Ouargla is very dangerous.
    Ouargla, is one of three large cities that border the gas and oil extraction zones of Hassi Rmmel and Hassi Messoud. Since the 2013 oil field attacks measures, including tougher security checks on local energy employees and wide-ranging air surveillance of the country’s oil and gas fields and installations. It is a focus for terrorists.
    There is often civil unrest due to high unemployment.
    Please stay safe.
