Sri Lankan PM says he will resign

Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says that he will resign to make way for an all-party government, he said in his tweet, which follows protesters storming the president’s residence and office.


President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was evacuated from the President’s House in capital Colombo before thousands of protestors stormed his residence on Saturday, demanding his resignation, in one of the largest anti-government marches in the crisis-hit island this year.
