Nepal's prime minister resigns

Nepal's Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has announced his resignation on national television after the president overturned his decision to fire the army chief.
Dahal made the announcement Monday after meeting with his party leaders and Cabinet.
Dahal sacked army chief Rookmangud Katawal on Sunday but President Ram Baran Yadav rejected the decision and ordered Katawal to return to work in a late night statement.
