Sporadic clashes have continued in some of the mixed neighbourhoods, notably Hadj Messaoud, where three young Chmbas were killed on Saturday evening, and where residents of the two communities have barricaded themselves in.
Three young Chmbas were killed on Saturday night, in circumstances that remain unclear, and another 190 people wounded, including 29 members of the security forces, according to medical sources.
But others argue that the problems began 50 years ago, with the Chmbas winning the backing of Algeria's ruling National Liberation Front (FLN), which had led the liberation struggle against France, and branding the Mozabites as bourgeois reactionaries.
