Tunisian PM Resigns Amid Failure to Unite Government

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali resigned on Tuesday, one day after his initiative to form a government of technocrats and put an end to the country's political crisis failed. 

“I vowed that if my initiative did not succeed, I would resign and ... I have already done so,” Jebali told a news conference after meeting with President Moncef Marzouki.
