Haitian prime minister Jack Guy Lafontant has resigned after his government raised fuel prices, setting off a wave of deadly riots. He stood down before a vote that could have led to his removal could take place. Critics had called for his resignation over the disturbances, which left at least seven dead and dozens of businesses burned and looted. The prime minister is the second highest official in Haiti, after the president.
