Top leader of Syrian exile group’s government resigns

BEIRUT — The main Syrian exile opposition group suffered more turbulence Monday when the prime minister of its nascent interim government resigned, according to a spokeswoman.

The resignation came two days after the group elected a new president as it tries to unify and arm the rebels fighting the government of President Bashar Assad and to help civilians in rebel-held areas of Syria.
