Romanian leader resigns over nightclub inferno

Romania's Prime Minister is to stand down after huge protests over a nightclub fire that killed more than 30 people after widespread protests. "I'm handing in my mandate, I'm resigning, and implicitly my government too," Victor Ponta said in a statement, adding he would stay on until a new coalition had been formed. "I am obliged to take note of the legitimate grievances which exist in society," he went on. "I hope handing in my and my government's mandate will satisfy the demands of protesters."
