Algerian Cartoonist Sent to Jail?

The BBC is reporting this morning that a cartoonist for Liberte is among various journalists sent to jail after convictions for defamation and related crimes. That would seem to indicate Ali Dilem, although I can't be sure. Confusing me further, I thought that the cartoonist in this case received only a fine, but I could be totally wrong abut that one.

He's another report and a more general one about Algerian law.
