    Bulgaria's government has resigned amid growing public violence over high energy prices and a low standard of living.

    Prime Minister Boiko Borisov had tried to calm nationwide street protests.

    He had sacked his finance minister and promised to cut the cost of electricity which is one of the major complaints from Bulgarians who earn, on average, just over 400 euros a month.
