Tunisian Education Minister Salem Labyedh has resigned, the prime minister's spokesman said on Wednesday, as pressure mounts on the government to step down.

Labyedh, a secular leftist, had said he was considering resigning after the killing of fellow leftist Mohamed Brahmi last week. The secular opposition has blamed the ruling Ennahda party for the killing and has called for the government to go.
