Jordan’s Prime Minister Hani Mulki has resigned after several days of protests against tax rises and austerity measures.

The protesters say a new tax bill backed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will hurt the poor and middle class.

The recent demonstrations are the biggest in years and have seen police fire tear gas and block roads.
