      Tunisia's Islamist Prime Minister Officially Resigns

      Tunisia's Islamist Prime Minister Ali Larayedh resigned on Thursday, as part of a plan to end months of political deadlock which has fuelled mounting social unrest, AFP reported.

      His resignation sees the departure of Tunisia's first democratically elected government, which came to power after former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was overthrown in the first of the Arab Spring uprisings almost three years ago.
