Tunisian Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi has announced his resignation after a renewed outbreak of street violence in the North African country in the past few days.

Ghannouchi was a longtime ally of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, and had pledged to guide the country until elections can be held this summer.

Ben Ali fled the country on January 14 amid massive protests.
