Bulgarian president names new caretaker government

Bulgaria's President Rosen Plevneliev has announced a caretaker cabinet, following weeks without a government.

The administration will be headed by a diplomat, Marin Raikov, who will organise early elections due in May.

Prime Minister Boyko Borisov resigned last month following persistent street protests against high energy bills, poverty and corruption.
