The Tunisian Health Minister has resigned following the deaths of 11 newborn babies at a hospital in the capital, Tunis.
Tunisia’s health ministry says evidence suggested they had all died from septic shock between 7-8 March.
Prime Minister Youssef Chahed says investigations have been launched into the state-run facility’s medical, pharmaceutical and hygiene practices.
