Tunisian PM Resigns After Failing to Form New Cabinet

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali enters the presidential palace in Tunis on Tuesday to announce his resignation from his post. The decision comes after the PM's attempt to end a political stand-off by forming a government of technocrats failed. Jebali had proposed to form the new cabinet to quell turmoil caused by the assassination of secular opposition politician Chokri Belaid on February 6. After a meeting with President Moncef Marzouki, Jebali spoke to the press.
