Tunisia's Islamist prime minister resigns
Tunisian Prime Minister Ali Larayedh, left, smiles after presenting his resignation to President Moncef Marzouki, Thursday Jan. 9, 2014, in favor of a caretaker government that will supervise new elections later this year. The resignation of Ali Larayedh and the dissolution of his coalition government represent an admission of defeat for the Ennahda Party that won elections in 2011 but has since struggled to guide the country through its perilous transition to democracy.
