Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali has resigned after failing to reach agreement on forming a new government.

Mr Jebali had been trying to form a new coalition in response to the political crisis sparked by the killing of opposition leader Chokri Belaid.

He had said he would quit if his Islamist Ennahda party did not back his plan for a cabinet of technocrats.

Mr Jebali announced his decision in a live television address after meeting President Moncef Marzouki.
