Armenian PM resigns after days of protests

Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan has resigned, state television reports.

 

Sargsyan's resignation follows 11 days of protests against him by opposition supporters, who accuse him of clinging to power after serving the maximum 10 years as president.

 

"The street movement is against my tenure. I am fulfilling your demand," he said in a statement.

 

Sargsyan was appointed prime minister last Tuesday after two consecutive terms as president.
