Bab el-Oued is a neighbourhood in Algiers, the capital of Algeria, along the coast north of the city centre. During the existence of French Algeria, Bab el-Oued became the main neighbourhood of poor pied-noirs, including many poor fishermen. Towards the end of the Algerian War of Independence, the neighbourhood became the stronghold of the Organisation de l'Armee Secrete, until OAS attacks on the French Army led them to assault and purge the neighbourhood.
