Haiti's prime minister Garry Conille submitted a letter of resignation (sans a suggested successor, evidently) to the country's president on Friday, barely two years after a devastating earthquake ripped apart Port-au-Prince and environs. Reuters broke the news around lunchtime, citing unnamed sources, and the details are not yet know, though the wire does mention that the resignation "comes amid political infighting between the [Conille and President Michel Martelly] over a parliamentary commission investigating the nationality of government ministers." The tension is certainly understandable considering the daunting amount of work Haiti's faced in recovering from the earthquake, not to mention managing the related -- and also controversial -- influx of foreign aid. Internal strife aside, rebuilding Haiti would be a tough job for anybody to handle.
