Tunisia HM resigns

Tunisia Minister of Health, El-Sherif resigned from his post on Saturday after 12 babies died within 24 hours at a hospital in the capital.

Blood infection is the suspected cause of death and the Ministry of Health and State prosecutors have launched an inquiry.

Tunisians have criticized their country’s failing declining state services since the ouster of Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali in 2011 which brought in a democratic transition but also threw the country into crisis.

Critics of the government say there is widespread corruption.
