Sri Lankan PM resigns amid economic crisis

Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has resigned amid mass protests over the country’s worst economic crisis since independence, the BBC reports.

The move came as the island was placed under curfew after violent clashes between Rajapksa supporters and anti-government protesters in Colombo.

At least 78 people have been injured in the violence in the capital, a local hospital says.

There have been protests over soaring prices and power cuts since last month.
